Children's Programs

The Silas Bronson Library's KidZone is now open! Even though we're hosting primarily outdoor, and Zoom-based programs this Fall, we're ready with all possible precautions in place to welcome you back to the KidZone. Some of our precautions include removing our toys from the main room, hand sanitizer and cleaning wipes are available for anyone who needs it. Masks are required in the building for anyone who is two (2) years old or older. If you forget your mask - just ask! We've got masks for kids and adults in the Front Lobby and up in the Children's Room too. 

All of our programs are hosted on our Silas Bronson Library Zoom platform unless otherwise noted during registration.

You can contact us for further information, or to register for any program at 203-574-8213 or email the KidZone librarians bronsonkids@waterburyct.org.
