Polar Express 2017 Pre-registration

Pre-registration begins at 9am on Tuesday, November 28. Stop by the Children's Department or call 814.237.6236 to reserve your family's seats. We'll be receiving a lot of calls that day, so we thank you for your patience with us, and for your enthusiasm!

We will be doing a queue system for taking calls again this year, so (once you get through to the Library's phone system) if you don't get to speak to someone right away, don't hang up! Stay on the line, so you don't lose your place in the queue. We have 8 phone lines available at one time, so if you hear a busy signal when you call, please try to call us again until you get through to the queue.

A new group will begin their Polar Express experience every 20 minutes, so we will ask you to choose a time on the hour, 20 minutes past the hour, or 40 minutes past the hour within each event day's time frame. (11am-3pm on Saturdays, 12/2 and 12/9, and 2pm-4:20pm on Sundays, 12/3 and 12/10.)
Children age 2 and younger are considered "lap-sit children", and will not receive their own seat on the trolley. When registering, let us know how many adults and how many children (3 and up) will need a seat, and how many children (2 and younger) will be sitting on an adult's lap.

One registration per family, please. For example, if you would like your children to ride the trolley with their cousins and aunt and uncle, or with a neighbor family, each family will need to register separately for your desired time slot. (Grandparents and other adults with no children of their own do not need to register separately; include them in your seat total.)
If the event day and time you were hoping for is full, or your family needs to make a last-minute decision about attending, don't worry! Walk-in registration is the perfect back-up plan.

Simply send someone from your family to sign up in the Children's Department on the day you would like to attend (as early as you can, in order to secure your seats), and then bring the entire family at your assigned time.
