Photos & Videos

  • Photos and video may be taken of children’s programs for use in Library publicity and documentation, including on our website and social media. If you prefer not to have your child’s image used, please notify the staff member running the program.

Caregiver Expectations

  • Both child and adult are expected to participate in programs for children with an adult or programs designated as “family programs.”
  • Caregivers with children under age 6 must remain in the Lodewick Children’s Library during the time their child is in a program.
  • Caregivers with children age 6 to 11 are requested to remain in the building during their child’s program.
