Unattended Child Policy

  • 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.
