Tips for Parents

  • When possible, accompany and stay with your child at the library, or send the child with an adult caregiver who will do likewise.
  • Teach your child your address and telephone number at home and at work so you can be reached in case of an emergency.
  • Pick up your child before library closing time. Library staff is not permitted to stay with your child after closing. Local law enforcement may be called if this occurs.
