Children in the Library Policy

All children in the University Libraries are subject to the following policies:

  • The same regulations as all other library users, e.g., eating only in designated areas or keeping noise at acceptable levels.
  • All children aged 16 and under must be accompanied and supervised by a parent, teacher or guardian while in the library.
  • If an unattended child is doing something that could result in an injury such as playing on an elevator or escalator, intervention to protect them from physical harm will be taken.

If after a verbal warning policy violations persist, children may be requested to leave the building.
