Program Registration Policies

Some programs available in the Youth Services require advanced registration. Due to the demand for children’s programs, the library has created the following policies in order to ensure the registration process is transparent and fair to all library patrons:

  • Registration will begin at 9:00 AM on the day specified on the program’s flier or on the library’s website. Registration will NOT begin any earlier than the specified date.

  • If there is an age requirement for a library program, only children who meet the specified age requirement will be registered for that program.

  • Parents/caregivers may register their children for programs in person or over the telephone. No email registrations will be accepted.

  • Registration is done on a “first come, first serve” basis. If all slots have been filled, childrens’ names will be added to a waitlist. Should a slot open up, the library staff will call the names on the list in order.

  • Parents/caregivers may only register their own children for library programs. Parents/caregivers may NOT register friends or other family members for programs.

  • If your child is unable to attend a program, please call the library to cancel so that the spot may be filled as soon as possible.

  • If a parent or caregiver brings more than 4 children to a program, another adult must accompany them to provide additional supervision.





To get a card for any child aged 12 and under, a parent or guardian must present identification and proof of the child’s address. The parent or guardian will be required to fill out and sign a library card application. This adult is legally responsible for following the rules and regulations of the Taunton Public Library, and will be responsible for all fees and charges made against this card. An additional signature is required if the parent or guardian wishes to allow Internet access to the minor child while in the library. The application will be kept in library files.

This card must be presented any time the child wishes to check out library materials or log on to an Internet computer.
