Program Registration: Jericho District Residents
Children ages birth to 4 years old: Parents or guardians must bring their Jericho Library card and proof of their child's age (birth certificate, birth announcement or passport) to the circulation desk. The child will be issued a yellow Preschool Program Registration card. This card can be used to register the child for programs online or with the Children's Room directly (in person or by phone). Once the child turns 5 years old they will be notified that they are now eligible for their first Jericho Library card. Click here for program registration.
Getting Your First Library Card
Children ages 5 and up are eligible to get their first library card. This card may be used for both program registration and checking out library items. Parents or guardians may sign up for a library card for their child at the Circulation Desk. Once the child receives the new library card, he/she will be given a gift the first three times the card is used to check out a book. Children's pictures will also be posted on our "New Card Holder" display board.
Jericho district grandparents may use their Jericho Library card to register their grandchild for programs. They will be able to register online or in person. The grandchild's name may be added in the note field. If a grandparent is registering more than one grandchild, they will need to come in person to the Children's Room to register them.
Non-residents may register online or in person 14 days prior to the start of the program unless otherwise noted.
