Unattended Child Policy

The Larchmont Library strives to create a fun and safe environment for children. Responsibility for children using the Library rests with their parent/guardian or caregiver, not the Library staff.

Children up to and including age 8 must have a parent/guardian or caregiver in visual contact with the child at all times.

Parents/guardians and caregivers must make arrangements to pick up older children by Library closing time. No child can be left at the library after closing time.

Parents/guardians are reminded that, even in their absence, they are legally responsible for their children.

This policy was adopted by the Board of Trustees on May 9, 2012.
