Fast Facts About PRL Youth Services
The Pine River Library staff welcomes children at the library. In order to make all library users comfortable in the library, we expect a high standard of behavior from everyone who enters the library and participates in children’s programming. All children attending library programs must fill out our Children’s Program Attendance Behavior Agreement, which can be completed online or at the library.
For all youth under the age of 12, you must be actively participating in a library program. Otherwise, to be at the library you must be accompanied by an adult or sibling older than 12 who is acting in a babysitting capacity. Older siblings must stay with any child under 12 that they are caring for while at the library.
- You are responsible for your behavior during a library program. You are expected to listen, follow instructions, and participate fully to the best of your ability. Asking for help or asking questions about the activities is encouraged.
- Everyone is responsible for cleaning up their messes. If you make a mess at a library program, you will be expected to clean up after yourself.
- Keep your voice at indoor, library levels. Speak respectfully to others at all times. Crude language is not acceptable.
- This is not a gym, a playground, or your house. Roughhousing during most programs is not acceptable. We do not want anyone to get hurt or anything to get broken.
It is our job to uphold these and other library rules. Please know that breaking these rules may result in your removal from a library program. If this happens, your parents will be contacted to pick you up from the library program.
