Policy for Children Visiting The Library
Updated May 16th, 2013
Children are welcome to our library. However, the responsibility for the safety and behavior of children rests with the parent or caregiver and not with the library staff. Library staff is not responsible for the supervision of children left unattended.
Children under the age of 7 must have a parent or caregiver in the same area of the library as the child. If taking the place of a parent, the caregiver must be at least 12 years old and must have emergency contact information.
Children ages 7 and up may use the library on their own. However, parents are still responsible for the actions and safety of their children.
Parents/guardians are responsible for items checked-out to children (under 18) with library cards, including all fines and damages.
Parents/guardians are responsible for their children while they are using the libraries' computers. Since the Diné College Libraries are academic libraries, they provide an adult, unsupervised environment for the purposes of academic research and to support the College's curriculum. Therefore, internet access is unfiltered. This unedited access to the internet may not be in your child's best interest.
The Library staff has the authority to act on the library's behalf if inappropriate behavior occurs. This action may include expulsion from the library or contacting campus security.
