Policy Update

Due to the ongoing challenges at APPL the Library Board has decided to update our unattended children policy at the request of City Officials.

Starting on September 15, the library will be updating the unattended minor policy (and any other relevant policies) to apply to children 15 and under, with the current exception of Teenage Advisory Board (TAB) kids who are working. This is being done at the request of the board as a measure to put the responsibility for what material is being accessed fully into parental hands.

With the update, children who are 15 years old and younger must be accompanied and directly supervised at all times by a parent, guardian, or any other responsible caregiver (who is 18+).
