Age Requirements in the Youth Services Area

Providing a secure environment for children and teens is a high priority of the library.

The Youth Services Area on the second floor of the Main Library is dedicated to resources and services for children and teens (birth through 18 years of age).Parents and caretakers are invited to accompany their children to the Youth Services Area to participate actively in reading, programs and the selection and use of library materials.

The use of the facility and resources is reserved for Youth (children plus teens through 18 years of age). For the safety of all children, adults (19 years and over) who are not accompanied by children, are to use the Youth Services Area only for the purpose of retrieving materials for check out or to make arrangements to pull materials for research to be used on the first floor of the library.
