Children’s Room Policies

Unaccompanied Children Under Seven

For the safety of our children and the comfort of all of our patrons, Abbot Public Library maintains this policy:

All children under the age of 7 must have an adult or a responsible person 13 years or older with them at all times while they are anywhere in the Library.

No library staff member is authorized to accept responsibility for the supervision or care for any minor child left alone or unattended at the Library at any time with the following exception:

Exception: Children ages 4-7 may be left at Library sponsored programs if the person responsible remains in the building.

Approved by the Board of Trustees, July 6, 1999.
