Try This @ Home: Library Event Calendar Online

event calendarA frequent question our Telephone Information Service receives concerns library programs, especially programs for children. All library programs are now conveniently entered in our online event calendar, which you can find by clicking the calendar image here or on the library's web page. Additional non-library events, like the Friends of the Library book sales, are also included.

The calendar has a few neat features:
  • You can find programs by branch, by age group, and by date.
  • For programs that require registration, you can register yourself online.

You don't need an e-mail address to use the calendar, but if you do have one, the following additional services are available:

  • If you have registered for a program, you will receive an e-mailed confirmation.
  • For programs that pique your interest, you can request automatic e-mail notification when a similar program is added to the calendar.
  • You can e-mail information about a specific program to friends.
  • You can request a reminder be sent to you a few days before a program you want to attend.

It's really easy to use, but if you have questions, our Telephone Reference librarians will be able to answer them. Check it out!
