Unattended Children

As of January first, 2013, the Rensselaer Library Commission has changed our Unattended Child policy.

“Children under the age of 10 may not be in the library without the direct supervision of a person at least 16 years or older.  “

Previously our policy allowed for babysitters aged 13 and up.   The library is not responsible for the supervision of unattended minors.  We will be enforcing this rule for the safety of the children and out of respect for other library users.  Children who are left unattended will be referred to the police.
