Childrens Policies

Childrens Holiday Materials

  • 4 items per holiday per card (excluding media items: DVDs, audiobooks and music CDs)
  • No Renewals
  • During the 30 days preceding a holiday: Items circulate for 1 week.
  • During the rest of the year: Items circulate for 3 weeks.

No Unattended Children under Age Nine Policy

The Abington Township Public Library staff and Board of Trustees hope that children using our Library will find it a warm and inviting place to be. The happiness and safety of young children left alone at the Library is a serious concern. Left on their own, they often become frightened or anxious. If left unattended for any length of time when no Library program is being offered, they often become bored, restless and disruptive. Therefore, the following policy has been established.

Library staff members cannot assume responsibility for the care, safety or well-being of children in the Library. Therefore, parents or caregivers may not leave children age eight or under unattended in the Children's Department when no program is being offered. Children may not be left alone in any other part of the Library at any time, and parents are responsible for the behavior of their children of any age while in the Library.
