This very difficult decision was made by the Library's Board of Trustees several years ago. In an effort to be the best possible stewards of the taxpayers' money, the Board felt that restricting enrollment to residents was fair. High-demand children's programs are limited to Plainfield Public Library District residents only. Despite offering 23 storytimes a week, there are still wait lists. Some programs are restricted at the beginning of the registration period and open later if demand for that program is less than anticipated. Registration for other types of programs is not restricted.
As a Joliet resident, you are able to attend Joliet Public Library children's programs without restriction.
