Your Child's Use of the Library

Please share with your child the importance and the responsibility of being a library card member. We do not restrict any item in the collection or limit access to the internet. Parents or legal guardians must assume responsibility for deciding what library resources (books, internet, and media) are appropriate for their own children. It is the responsibility of the parents and legal guardians to guide their own children’s usage of library resources in accordance with individual family beliefs.
