Supervision of Children

The Twin Lakes Library System is dedicated to providing a welcoming and safe environment for patrons of all ages. A parent, guardian or other responsible adult caregiver should always accompany children in the library. Children should have a contact number for a parent, guardian or other responsible adult caregiver. Library personnel cannot be held responsible for children who are unattended or demonstrating inappropriate behavior. Children who are being disruptive will be asked to leave.

1. Children 9 and younger must have a parent, guardian or adult caregiver in the immediate vicinity of and in visual contact with the child. The adult should supervise and accompany children during program activities.

If the child in this age group is found unattended, library staff will attempt to locate the parent, guardian or adult caregiver in the library and remind him/her of the rules. If the parent, guardian or adult caregiver cannot be found, or if the child is found unattended again, the appropriate City agency will be called for assistance.

2. Children 10 and older may use the library on their own. However parents are still responsible for their actions and well-being. These children should have a contact number for a parent, guardian or adult caregiver in case of an emergency.

Children’s Computers

1. Children 3 and under must have a parent, guardian or adult caregiver sit with them at all times when they are using the computers.

2. Children 9 and under must have a parent/adult caregiver in the immediate vicinity of and in visual contact with the child.

3. No food or drink allowed at the computer station.

4. No other devices may be plugged into the children’s computers.

5. Patrons who don’t use the children’s computers responsibly will lose their privileges for the day.

Closing Time

All children are to be picked up at closing time of the library. However 15 minutes past closing the library staff may call the police or other appropriate City agency.
