Young children

Young and unattended children

The Stanwood Public Library encourages visits by young children and it is our desire to make this important visit enjoyable for the child.  Library staff is not expected to assume responsibility for the care of unsupervised children in the library.


Therefore, it is library policy that all children under age six must be accompanied by a parent or designated responsible person while in the library.  Also, if the young child is attending a library program, we require the parent/responsible person to remain in the library throughout the program.
