Yes, parents may bring their children into the library.

We have a couple of tips for parents bringing children:

  1. We suggest you use the first floor if possible, as the second floor is designated quiet study.
  2. Please use our Family Workstation on the first floor. It's a special double study carrel, with a desk and chair for you to work on one side, and an enclosed play area on the other side. Check it out sometime, and let us know what you think!

Please also note the college policy on bringing children to the library:

  • Minor children may visit the library with their parent or guardian for limited periods of time, when their parent or guardian is conducting routine business.
  • Children can never be left in the library while their parent or guardian is in another location, like a classroom or another campus office or service location.
  • Line of sight supervision by parent or guardian is required at all times.
  • Please be aware if a child becomes disruptive to others studying in the library. Let library staff know if you need to leave your things and take your child outside for a break.
  • See the Minor Children on Campus to read the complete policy.
