Library Policy for Children

A child (an individual under the age of 18 years old) will be considered “unattended” if it appears to Library staff that he/she is not accompanied by a parent, guardian, and/or responsible caregiver.
Parents, guardians, and/or caregivers are solely responsible for the safety and behavior of their children. They are advised that children, like all Library users, are expected to comply with the Library’s “General Rules and Regulations” and a child who violates those rules may be asked to leave Library premises. Parents, guardians and/or caregivers should be aware of scheduled closing times and that a Library facility may sometimes close unexpectedly due to an emergency or safety issue. It is the responsibility of parents, guardians and/or caregivers to let their children know what to do if they are required to leave the Library during an emergency.
