Safety of Children
The Grace M. Pickens Public Library staff hope that the families, who use our library, will see our facility as warm, inviting and a fun place to be. We also hope that children will visit the library and develop a lifelong love of books, reading and libraries. We want to extend a friendly reminder that parents and guardians are responsible for their children while their children are at the library or attending programs.
Parents are strongly encouraged to come into the library with their children to confirm that the scheduled program is available for their child. Sometimes the library program requires pre-registration or attracts a full capacity crowd in the meeting room. Children who are unable to look out for their own safety should not be left unattended at the library.
Parents and guardians are responsible for their juvenile children* while their children are at the library. Children who are unable to look out for their own safety shall not be left unattended at the library. In no event may children 7 years of age or younger be left unattended in the library.
Oklahoma State Law (Title 15 ss13) defines a juvenile as a person less than 18 years of age.
