Supervision of Children Policy

The library is a public place, and as such, cannot be responsible for unattended children. For their safety and protection:
 
Children under the age of seven must be accompanied and adequately supervised by an adult throughout the building. Children 7-11 years of age must have an adult in the building.
 
Are you ready for the new school year?



Our library is proud to offer the Tutor.com service for all your child's homework needs. Tutor.com offers personalized chat help for all grades and subjects from 4 pm until 11 pm daily. They also provide a 24 review service for papers and math assignments. All you need to log in is a library card and PIN number. We hope you check out all this service has to offer!

Check out Miss Kelly's Storytime & Library Programming Blogs: These blogs are intended to be a resource for parents. Miss Kelly hopes that by sharing literacy promoting activities that take place at storytime as well as information about what's new and exciting at the library with parents and their children, this will encourage the continuation of these activities at home.
