Children’s Room

Policy: Safety of Children in the Library

Using the Children’s Room:

  • Our library is a shared space for all ages
  • It’s important to be mindful of those around you. Please engage in appropriate topics of conversation, and be aware of the language you’re using during your visit.
  • Respect personal space
  • Hitting, kicking, and other aggressive behavior are not allowed in our library.
  • Remember to show kindness
  • Please refrain from talking negatively about your peers, and expect the same behavior from others.
  • Make suggestions. If you’ve read something wonderful and see that we don’t own it, or have a great idea for a program, we’d like to hear about it. We value your ideas.
  • Remember you’re indoors. No need to shout to be heard. If a friend is outside hearing range, walk to where they are rather than raising your voice.
  • You’re responsible for your personal belongings. Backpacks, laptops, instruments, and other personal belongings should not be left unattended in the library. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
  • Leave a clean space
  • If you bring snacks or drinks to enjoy outside, it remains your responsibility to see that all bottles and packaging make it into the trash/recycling.
  • Responsible behavior is expected at the library the same way it is expected in any other public space.
  • Children under eleven (11) may not be left unattended in the building, and will be considered unattended unless they are accompanied by a responsible parent, guardian or a caretaker who is fourteen (14) years old or older and can appropriately monitor behavior.
