Children ages 9 and younger must be accompanied by a caregiver over the age of 14. Library staff are not responsible for the safety of any child left unattended in the Library.
Children who are not following Library Behavior guidelines will be required to leave the Library. If the child is not accompanied by an adult, the Alhambra Police Department Youth Services Division may be called for assistance.
You may request a copy of the Library's Unattended Child Policy at the Children's Reference Desk or visit our About Us page to download a copy.
We appreciate your cooperation in helping the Library provide a safe, comfortable facility for children to use. By working together we can provide the best service possible for the children of our community.
