Minors: Information for Parents

  1. Supervising and ensuring the safety of minor children in the University Library, as in any other public place, is a parent's or legal guardian's responsibility.
  2. Please do not ask or expect library employees to supervise or oversee the whereabouts or activities of a minor child.
  3. Please be aware that the University Library is open to the general public, a situation which could present risks to unaccompanied minors.
  4. Please be aware that as a university library, the CSUN Library’s collection is geared primarily toward adults. It both houses, and provides unfiltered internet access to material(s) that may not be age-appropriate.
  5. Parents or guardians are responsible for any behaviors by a minor including, but not limited to, damage caused to the interior or exterior of the Library building due to skateboarding/scootering; graffiti; deliberately damaging library books and other materials, computer equipment, furniture, or any part of the interior or exterior of the Library building.
  6. The Library employee in charge will request that minors leave the premises if the Library Code of Conduct or other policies are not followed.
  7. If a parent or legal guardian cannot be located in a timely fashion, Library personnel will call the CSUN Department of Police Services to take custody of any unaccompanied minors.
