The Independence Public Library staff welcomes and encourages children to use our library. We try to keep them safe and occupied while they are in the library.
However, we are not a daycare center or an after-school program. We do not prevent children from leaving the library and cannot keep track of where they have gone or who they have left with.
Unruly children are asked to leave the library even if their parents have told them to stay. (Children who have been asked to leave may call their parents and wait to be picked up in the hallway.)
All children under 5 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible caretaker.
