New Policy for Children`s Programs

Due to our limited seating for programs, Yorkville Patrons will  have first priority to sign up for them. One week prior to the program Non-Patrons can sign up (at the higher fee) or be placed on the waiting list.

Also, the programs which have registration and no fee are        for Yorkville Patrons only. Ex: On the Move, Spanish Storytime etc.

There is still a fee and registration for certain programs.
