Things to Keep in Mind...

Our storytimes rely on you and your child's interaction and participation. Therefore, we ask:

  • Please register only your own children.
  • Choose one weekday storytime per child. 
  • Siblings are welcome, except for Preschool Stories.
  • If you are on the waiting list, please wait until you receive a call or email that a space is available.
  • For programs with caregivers, no more than 2 children per lap (excluding siblings).
  • No photography or filming.
  • If you cannot attend a storytime, please notify the Youth Services Department for an excused absence.  You can call us at 847-918-3218 or email us at cref (at) fremontlibrary.org.
  • Help Keep Us All Healthy! Stay home if you or your child is sick with any active symptoms.  Call 847-918-3218 to report an absence from a program.
