Brewster Ladies’ Library Teen Room Policy

The Teen Room at the Brewster Ladies’ Library provides a safe and welcoming environment for teens to gather, socialize, and use the library’s resources. The space is designed and intended exclusively for young adults between the ages of 12 and 18. All seating in the Teen Room is reserved for 12 to 18 year old patrons. An adult may accompany a young adult into the Teen Room for the purpose of assisting with any tasks. Materials in the Teen Room are selected for the young adult population but are available to all patrons. Any library patron may visit the Teen Room to find and select material for borrowing.

 

Teen Room computers are to be used only by patrons between the ages of 12 and 18. Computer use is limited to thirty minutes if other teen patrons are waiting. Food and drink are not permitted at computer stations. The library has a policy of open access; Internet sites and content are not restricted. Parents and guardians are solely responsible for establishing appropriate computer use guidelines and boundaries for young adults’ Internet use. Please protect your own privacy with safe computer and Internet practices.
