Unattended Children Policy

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

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.
