Children's Room Policies

Children under fourteen are welcome to register for a Library Card with a parent or guardian’s approval. The co-signing adult assumes responsibility for lost or damaged materials.

Children are allowed to borrow materials from any area of the library in keeping with the principles of the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights. Suggested reading lists are available and we are happy to make recommendations based on the age and interests of the child. Final choices always rest with the children and their parents.  

Books may be borrowed for three weeks. Magazines, videos, DVDs, and audiobooks have a loan limit of two items each for a loan period of one week.

Children may take advantage of the interlibrary loan system and reservation policy.
