Out of concern for the safety of minors, the Worth Public Library board has made a change to the Unattended Child Policy. Starting Monday, April 19th, “children ten (10) years of age and under must be accompanied, attended to and within close physical proximity of a parent or other responsible person who is a minimum of seventeen (17) years of age”. In regard to programs for children, the description of the program will list whether or not a child must be with a parent/guardian while attending the event.
If parents/guardians have any concerns with this policy change, they are welcome to contact the board, or attend any of the library’s board meetings. Information regarding upcoming meetings, and how to attend, will be located with the meeting agenda at www.worthlibrary.com. Library policies are available on the library website as well.
