Two years old.
To be alone in the Children's Room, a child needs to be in fifth grade. The library's Child Safety Policy states grade level and not age in order to keep peers together.
Children in fifth grade (or over the age of 10) can be alone in the Children's Room for up to, but not exceeding, two hours.
Children in grades four or below who are attending library programs must have a responsible person remain in the building throughout the program.
No, children up to grade four must be continually attended and supervised by a parent or parent’s representative (someone 15 years or older) while in the library.
A parent’s representative is another adult or teenager (15 years or older) who has been designated by a parent to insure that his or her child is safe and acting in accordance with library rules.
If you have a program suggestion or any children’s program feedback, please contact Sonja Drotar, Head of Youth Services, at email@example.com.
If you are in the library, please feel free to approach any of our Children's Librarians; we are always willing to help. If you are at home, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a Children's librarian will reply promptly.
The Children’s Room is regularly evaluating the need for volunteers. If you are interested, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Annie Lee King at email@example.com.
As of right now, outside groups are not allowed to book the Children’s program room.
The courtyard is only meant to be enjoyed by children and their families.
All posting must be approved by the Head of the Children’s Department, Head of Circulation, or the Library Director. Only content provided by non-profit organizations can be posted on the board.
No, the courtyard can only be used by children and their accompanying adults.
Another person may use your library card account, however, the CARD MUST BE PRESENT. We cannot look up a person’s account who is not physically present.
Food is not permitted in the Children’s Room. If a snack is needed, we ask that people please eat in the courtyard or on the main levels in the Community Commons (the area with the tall tables near the Meeting Rooms).
