Valle Verde Library - Summary of Collections, Guidelines/Practices, and Services: Children in the Library

Children in the Library

  • Children under 17 MUST be accompanied by an adult and must be supervised at all times. *
  • Library staff may reprimand disruptive children.
  • If the disruptive behavior continues, a staff member will inform parents that their child is disturbing others.
  • If parents refuse or are unable to control the child, a staff member may summon campus police to ask the family to leave.
  • If children under 17 are left unattended in the library, a staff member will summon the campus police or will escort the children to the police department.
  • At its discretion, the library may exclude from use or revoke borrowing privileges for anyone known to have violated any rule in this policy.


*Exceptions are students taking credit hours at EPCC, such as dual credit students and early college students. (Continuing Education students under 17 must be accompanied by an adult.)
