We try to have programs for every age at the Library! Examples of programs we regularly run include Story Times for infants, toddlers and preschoolers; Crafts for toddlers, preschoolers and school age kids; Singalongs; Story Telling; Dance Parties; and Special Events.
Depending on the program, some require registration, but many are held on a drop in basis. We hold programs on mornings, afternoons, evenings and Saturdays throughout the year.
You can find out what is going on by looking at our calendar on our website, picking up a monthly calendar in the Children’s Room, or signing up for our email newsletters.
Summer Reading Club
Every summer, from June to August, we run a Summer Reading Club for children ages 3 to 12 using the National Summer Reading Program. Children are able to win incentives or raffle prizes by reading all summer long. We work in conjunction with the public schools to provide support for reading over the summer months.
The library is for everyone to use. Behavior that is proper and respectful is expected at all times in the library. Parents are expected to enforce our policies with their children. Unruly children may be asked to leave if they can’t follow the rules.
Computer and Internet Access
The Tewksbury Public Library does not use any internet filtering software. Supervision of children on the internet is the responsibility of the parent. The library’s Internet Policy must be agreed to before access to the internet is granted.
We recommend no child under the age of 10 years old be left alone in the library. The library is a public building which is accessible by anyone in the community. Library staff is not responsible for watching unattended children at the library. Please make sure if you do leave your child unattended at the library that they know how to contact you. The library does not have a public pay phone on the premises.
