Unattended Children

Parents may not leave children under age 10 unattended in the library.

The Basloe Library is not responsible for any child left unattended in the library.  Unattended children could become stranded at closing time or during an unexpected closing.  In this situation, if no parent of guardian is available or reachable by phone, police assistance will be requested for the safety of the child.

Parents are responsible for their children’s behavior while in the library.  Disruptive children will be asked to leave after two warnings (refer to our “Disruptive Patrons” policy).  Disruptive children accompanied by a parent will also be asked to leave after the parent has received two warnings.
