Library Safe Child Policy
The Caswell County Public Library welcomes children of all ages. It is a doorway through which life-long learning takes place. The library is a public building and, as such, everyone is welcome.

Library staff has many duties to perform in order to serve all the citizens of the area. They cannot monitor the behavior or whereabouts of each patron, including children. Staff cannot take over parental responsibilities for children who come into the library.
  • Parents/caregivers are responsible for the child’s behavior at all times while in the building.
  • Children 12 and under cannot be left alone in the library and must be accompanied by an adult.  

Unattended Children:

Staff members will try to identify and locate the parents/caregivers of unattended children.
  1. If they cannot be located in the library building, a staff member will monitor the child until the parent/ caregiver returns to the library.
  2. When they are located, the library policy on unattended children will be explained and a copy given to the parent/caregiver.
  3. Staff will record the parent’s/caregiver’s name, address, telephone number and the child’s name.
  4. Staff will refer any additional incidents to social services/police.
  5. Library staff members are not allowed to give rides to children or leave them alone in the building.

Appropriate Behavior

Parents or caregivers are responsible for monitoring the behavior of their children.

Disruptive children can detract from other patron’s enjoyment of the library. Therefore, library staff may approach a disruptive child or parent/guardian to address their behavior. If the disruptive behavior continues, the parent/caregiver may be asked to remove the child from the library.
