SHERIDAN – The Sheridan County Public Library System Board of Trustees approved an unattended children and disruptive behavior policy during Wednesday’s regular board meeting.
The policy says children 5 years old and younger must have a parent, guardian or caregiver in the immediate vicinity or within visual range. A non-parent or caregiver must be at least 16 years old to be with a child 5 years old and younger.
The policy also says children ages 6 to 9 years old are welcome with a parent, guardian or caregiver in the library. Any child 10 years old and older are welcome on their own as long as they carry emergency contact information for their parent or guardian.
Sheridan Public Library System Director Cameron Duff said they expect to post the policy Friday in the library and on its website.
