The Library is a public space open to all members of the community. It is not a monitored space. It is the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian to supervise and ensure the safety of minor children in Broome Library, as in any public place. Minors should be always accompanied by an adult caregiver. Library employees cannot supervise or monitor the activities of a minor.

Safety Concerns

Parents or guardians should be aware of the following safety concerns: 

  • The Broome Library facility is open to the public. 
  • Broome Library provides access to content which may be inappropriate for a minor. 
  • Library employees are unable to authorize medical care if an unattended minor is injured or becomes ill. 
  • Library employees cannot prevent a minor from leaving the building. 

Responsibilities of Library Employees

  • If unattended minors are being disruptive, or if there is a concern for their safety, library employees will call Campus Policeto escort the minor off the premises and locate the parent/caregiver. 

  • If minors are left in the Library facility at closing time or in the event of an emergency, library employees will immediately call Campus Police to escort the minor off the premises and locate the parent/caregiver. 

We appreciate your cooperation in making Broome Library a safe place for all patrons.
