Policy Statement:

The Flagstaff City-Coconino County Public Library (“Library”) welcomes children and individuals with special needs to use its’ facilities and services.  The responsibility for the care, safety and behavior of children and individuals with special needs rests with the parent/guardian or responsible caregiver.  Library staff cannot assume responsibility for unattended children or unattended individuals with special needs.


Unattended Child or Individual with Special Needs: an individual using the Library unaccompanied by a parent/guardian or caregiver or left alone in one part of the Library while the parent/guardian or caregiver is in another.

Vulnerable Child or Individual with Special Needs: an unattended individual whose safety or well-being could be endangered either in the Library, or if he/she were to leave the building.  Library staff must use their judgment and discretion in determining whether or not an unattended individual is vulnerable or at risk.


       Children and individuals with special needs are required to comply with the Library’s Rules of Conduct.

       Children under 10 years old and individuals with special needs that require a caregiver must have supervision at all times while in the Library by someone age 14 or older.

      Children 6 years old and under must stay with a parent/guardian or caregiver at all times.

     In the event that an unattended child or individual with special needs is vulnerable – during Library hours or after Library closing hours – and parent/guardian or caregiver cannot be contacted to provide care or transportation, Library staff will call the Flagstaff Police Department.
