Unattended Children Policy

The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library system staff hopes that the children who use our libraries will perceive our facilities as warm, inviting and fun places to be. Many programs are offered to make libraries enticing to children and to help children enjoy their visits and develop a love of books, reading and libraries!

The Youth Services staff is committed to helping children with activities related to the library. However, children should not be left unattended, as staff members are not able to serve as baby-sitters, teachers, or disciplinarians. We reserve the right to ask children to leave the library at our discretion.
