Unattended Adults Policy

Adults may visit the Weston Public Library Youth Services Department only when accompanied by children using this department or retrieving materials for research or check out. Unaccompanied adults who are retrieving materials for research or check out may not remain in the Youth Services Department to review the materials, but instead should take them to the adult section of the library to review. Unaccompanied adults may be asked by library staff to use the facilities, services, and equipment in the adult section of the library.    

 Adults may not participate in programs organized for children and teens unless parental/caregiver attendance is required or the program is offered as a family program. Staff will ask uninvited adults to leave children or teen programs. Adults who do not comply with this request will be asked to leave the library or AIC and, if necessary, Weston Police will be notified. 

 This policy reflects concern for the safety of children in the library and at the AIC.
