SAFE CHILD POLICY:

Children age six and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult (age 18 or older) at ALL times while in the library. The library cannot assume responsibility for the safety of young children.

Children ages seven through ten must have a responsible adult present inside the library. All Patrons will be expected to display appropriate behavior, conducive to maintaining a peaceful atmosphere while in the building. Staff will not provide transportation to children who have been left at the library at closing. Instead, staff will contact the Odenville Police Department to report that a child has been left at the library and will wait until police arrive to claim the child.

PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS, NOT LIBRARY STAFF, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACTIONS AND SAFETY OF CHILDREN VISITING THE LIBRARY.

If the address does not match (just moved to town, etc) we require the state issued photo ID plus two pieces of official current mail in your name (such as utility bill), to your current address. Library cards are updated annually.
