Family-Friendly Study Area Policy

Purpose

The family friendly study area provides a welcoming study space for CSU – Pueblo students, faculty, and staff who are parents or guardians of children ages 13 and under, and houses the library’s children’s and young adult collections.

Guidelines

The family friendly study area on the library’s 3rd floor is reserved for CSU – Pueblo students, faculty, staff and their families.

The CSU – Pueblo University Library welcomes children of all ages however, for their safety and comfort as well as in recognition of the rights and privileges of other library patrons, parents are asked to observe the following:

  • Any child under the age of 13 must be supervised by a parent or caregiver* at all times while inside the library. The Library does not act in loco parentis (in place of the parents) and staff cannot take responsibility for monitoring the safety or behavior of unattended children.
  • If any child visiting the library experiences a problem and the parent or caregiver is not present in the building or cannot be reached by telephone campus security will be contacted to take charge of the situation.
  • If any unsupervised child under the age of 10 comes to the attention of library personnel, campus security will be contacted.
  • The Library strives to provide an atmosphere conducive to study and research and children are expected to use the library in a quiet, orderly manner just as we expect from all patrons. Loud, noisy or disruptive behavior is inappropriate and children, with their parent, guardian, or caregiver, will be asked to leave if this type of behavior persists.
  • The Library is dedicated to providing all of our patrons with free and equal access to information; as such, there are no filters on the university’s internet access (see Computer Use Policy) and Library staff does not limit access to or censor any of its resources. Parents who wish their children not to have access to certain types of materials should monitor their use of its resources.
  • The Library reserves the right to ask any individual who is interfering with the use of the space by families to leave.


*A caregiver is defined as any individual 18 years of age or older who has been given the authority and responsibility to care for a child by the child's parent or legal guardian.
