What are the Library’s policies regarding unattended children?
It’s Summer Time!! We are excited to see everyone in the Library again. We though we would take a moment to talk about our policy regarding children who are unattended by an adult. Our complete policy can be found here: https://valleycenter.scklslibrary.info/library-programs/policies/unattended-child-policy/
The Library welcomes use by your child and staff will assist him/her in use of Library materials or services. For a child’s safety and comfort, a responsible adult or caregiver shall accompany a young child while he/she is using the Library. For the purposes of this policy: A child is anyone under 8 years old. A caregiver is any individual 12 years of age or older who has been given the authority and responsibility to care for a child by the child’s parent or legal guardian. The Library does not act in loco parentis (in place of parents) and Library staff does not have the authority to take responsibility for your child. If you have any questions about this or any other policy or concern, please speak with Library staff.
