Supervision of Children Policy

The library is a public place, and as such, cannot be responsible for unattended children. For their safety and protection:
 
Children under the age of seven must be accompanied and adequately supervised by an adult throughout the building. Children 7-11 years of age must have an adult in the building.
 




Our library's annual Summer Reading program for kids is here! All kids have to do to recieve a prize and a free book is read 50 days this summer. We recommend counting all days where you read at least 15 minutes. Prizes will be available on a date to be determined. To participate just create an account at https://macdonaldlibrary.beanstack.org/reader365. We have a paper log also available if you'd like to download and print it to track reading.
