  • Child Safety at the Library

    Child Safety at the LibraryThe Pasadena Public Library welcomes children. Our staff serves children by answering questions, assisting in the search for good books to read, providing materials to complete homework assignments and presenting special programs. The staff cannot act in the place of parents or serve as babysitters.

    To ensure the safety of children during their visit to the Library the following policies have been adopted:

    • Children, ages 6 years old and younger, must be accompanied by a care provider at least 12 years of age and the care provider must remain with the child during the entire visit.
    • Children and youth under age 18 are expected to follow the Library Standards of Behavior. Enforcement may include "... removal of patron from the building."
    • Parent or guardian will be notified if a child or teen under the age of 18 continues to disregard the Library's Standards of Behavior.
    • Police will be called if a child under the age of 13 is left at the library after closing.
