Registration is open for Tyson Library’s Summer Seafarers programming! We welcome everyone to join us for a summer full of fun as we dive into “Oceans of Possibilities.”

Registration is required for our programs due to limited space, so we encourage our patrons to sign up now to save your child’s spot. A new registration form is required for summer reading, even if your child is already attending our after school activities.

Registration forms can be picked up from the library or can be requested by emailing
