DEARBORN – The Dearborn Library Commission has once again approved temporary safety guidelines in effect during the busy study period between January 7 and January 18.
The library Commission has come up with this decision in order to accommodate busy parents and make the Dearborn Public Library a welcoming environment for all who visit. It’s implementing these guidelines at all Dearborn Library locations – Bryant Branch, Esper Branch and Henry Ford Centennial Library.
Between those dates, all students between 13- and 18-years-old are allowed to come to the library without being accompanied by parents; however, they are required to have a parent present with them to sign an agreement of responsibility and show identification. Parents need not remain in the building with their children, but can if they choose.
The agreement states that both the parent(s) and student have read the Library Code of Conduct and will abide by library rules. Staff will be posted near the public entrance doors to facilitate student visits. A parent only needs to sign the agreement once during these dates.
At all times, the Dearborn Public Library requires that students between 13- and 18-years-old are prepared to show school ID or other valid photo identification while using any Dearborn Public Library.
Additionally, children under the age of 13 must always be accompanied by someone 18 years of age or older when using the Dearborn Public Library.
The goal of the Dearborn Public Library is to provide a positive and quiet atmosphere for all who visit to use library resources.
