Kids Space

Reading, Rhyming and Running Around
Parents and Caregivers, join our toddler/preschool program every Tuesday at 10:30am.  We start with stories and song to wake us up and then move to the gym for some free play.  Snacks generously provided by the Metis Nation of Ontario.

We welcome our elementary age kids after school on Tuesday for a variety of activities.  LEGO, Wii, Crafts, Book Babble… each week has a different theme.

Child Safety in the Library
The Hastings Highlands Public Library welcomes children.  Library staff recognizes that children of all ages have a right to a welcoming, respectful, supportive and safe environment when they visit the library. However, the library is a busy public place and library staff cannot assume responsibility for children left unattended within our public facility.
This policy provides library staff with guidelines when confronted with a situation where a child’s conduct is unacceptable or a child’s security is at risk. The following policy establishes the conditions needed to maintain the well-being of children and the responsibilities of their caregivers.
