Safe Child Policy

Williamsburg Regional Library does not assume responsibility or liability for the safety, care, or supervision of children.  Parents, legal guardians, or caregivers are responsible for their children’s behavior and welfare.

Supervision by a parent, legal guardian, or caregiver is strongly recommended for all children while in library facilities or attending programs.  Children age 8 and under must be accompanied by a parent, legal guardian, or caregiver.

The police department will be contacted when any child aged 17 or under is left unattended one-half hour after the official close of any Library location or program.
