That’s probably why many of the kids programs fill up so quickly—and why many require an RSVP in advance of the program date.

As a result, Hillsborough Patch will be tweaking how Take Five handles the library’s happenings. Instead of listing the events day-of, we’ll try to give one day’s notice for the events, so people can RSVP earlier.

Here’s what you need to know today:

They’ll want to register ahead of time by calling 908-369-2200, extension 14, so the library can provide enough snacks for everyone.
