calendar How to Register Online

You can help make this a smooth transition by following the tips below.

Get ready:

  • If you’re not already a cardholder, obtain a library card for your child and yourself. Children of any age need their own library card to register for programs. You cannot register for children’s programs online with an adult library card.
  • Update each family member’s information. On our website, click “View your account” and log in with your child’s library card barcode or username. You can check your address, phone number and the card’s expiration date. You’ll need to come to the library in-person if you need to change your address or renew your card but you can update your phone number online.
  • While viewing your account, you can also enter your e-mail address and change your password. You can use the same e-mail address for all family members if you like. Confirmation and reminder notices for registered programs will be sent to your e-mail address. We will also notify you by e-mail if your child has been transferred into a program from a waitlist. In “View your account,” you will be able to display all programs a library cardholder is registered for.


  • On the first day of registration, in-person registration will begin at 9 a.m. and online registration will begin at 12 noon. You can still come into the library to register if you prefer; just remember that you must bring your child’s card with you. If you ask another family member to register your child, please give them the library card.
  • To register online, have your child’s East Islip Library card handy and go to the library’s website, http://www.eipl.org. From the line of links at the top of the main page, click on the “Kids’ Corner” to go to the Children’s Department home page.
  • Once there, click on “Current Programs” and then select the correct month’s programs to view class offerings and descriptions. Click on “Program Calendar” and then select the desired program program calendar
  • Register by clicking on the icon registration icon at the bottom of the pop-up class description.

Please adhere to all posted age or grade level requirements or your registration will be invalidated. Children must meet age requirements by the first day of the program. Please remember that 3 ½ years old means the child must be at least 3 years and 6 months old.

You MUST enter the requested information such as your child’s birth date, age or grade level in the “Note to Instructor” field or your registration will be invalidated.

Please stop in or call us (581-9200 x6) in advance with your programming and registration questions.
