Effective Immediately!  Children under thirteen (13) may not be left unattended.  Parents or guardians are responsible for the behavior of their children in the library.  A sibling and/or a babysitter (age 16 or older) may accompany a young child; however, if the sibling or babysitter cannot control the younger child, the younger child shall be considered unattended.

The Lois Nelson Public Library strives to create an environment that is a warm, inviting and fun place for children to develop an appreciation of the varied services and materials that the library offers. When children are left unattended they often become disruptive.
