Unattended Children Policy  

The Pulaski County Public Library System welcomes children and strives to provide a safe, stimulating environment for their educational and cultural needs.    Staff members are available to assist children with library materials or services but parents/legal guardians are responsible for the safety and behavior of their children. Caregivers are reminded that numerous unexpected events may occur if the children under their supervision are left unattended. 

 For the safety and comfort of children, a responsible parent/legal guardian or caregiver must keep any preschool child(ren)* at all times under his/her direct supervision while in the library. An adult should accompany elementary-aged child(ren)** to the library and remain in the building. 

Young People Left Unattended at  Closing

The Library staff of this library system does not leave a young person alone after the library closes.
If staff can not verify that someone is on the way to pick up the child or if staff is unable to locate parents or caregiver, the following guidelines will be followed: 
       Staff will immediately notify the local town police department. If a child leaves with the police, a notice will be taped to  the door with this information about the young person. 
       Although we recognize that many times young people rely on other means of transportation besides parents, it is the Parent's responsibility to be aware of the Library’s closing hours and to make sure the child is picked up promptly.
