Children's Programs

The Silas Bronson Library's KidZone is now open! Even though we're hosting primarily outdoor, and Zoom-based programs this Summer, 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.  While masks aren't mandatory, we highly encourage the use of masks for anyone over two years of age.

We are planning some outdoor fun now that the weather has warmed up - stay tuned throughout the summer!!

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.
