Changes to Unattended Child Policy

Out of concern for the safety of minors, the Worth Public Library board has made a change to the Unattended Child Policy.  “Children eleven (11) years of age and under must be accompanied by, 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.
