Responsibility for children using the library rests at all times with the parent/caregiver and not with library personnel.
Children under the age of 9 may not be left unattended
Children 9 and older may be left unattended at the discretion of their parent(s) for a reasonable time period such as that required to complete assignments like homework or research, attend a library program, or otherwise utilize library resources.
Children must know how to reach an adult in case of emergency, and both child and adult should make themselves aware of library hours.
If any child is left too long or left repeatedly in any unsafe situation, library personnel may contact the Rowley Police.
Please consult the RPL policy manual for more complete descriptions of expected patron behavior.
