Rules for Children's Behavior

Using the Library should be an exciting experience for children, but remember, other people are here trying to read or study. And even though playing in the Library is fun, safety issues are a concern for both library staff and visitors.

In order to insure that everyone visiting the Library enjoys their time here safely, the following are rules for Library Behavior.

1.- Please walk in the Library.
2.- Pick up after yourself.
3.- Do not climb on the bookshelves. Parents and caretakers, please do not let children sit on top of the shelves as this is very dangerous.
4.- Please do not bring food into the Library.
5.- Use your inside voice at all times.
6.- Children eight and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. Please see our Child Supervision Policy for more information.
7.- School age children 9 - 12 and up may use the library unattended as long as their conduct is acceptable in a library setting. Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated.  Parents will be called depending on severity of the contact.
8.- The parent must be aware of library hours and must pick up their child/children before closing. Children under 17 and younger not picked up 30 minutes after closing will be referred to the Police Department; this is to ensure the safety of your child.
