We now have a way of showing items that have been recently added to our collection in the past 30 days. If you are looking for an item that we don’t have, please contact us- we can help you get it from another library, or possibly purchase it for our library.
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.
