Leaving your child at the public library could result in a call to children's aid (and loss of your children).
Unattended Children Policy
The library welcomes children of all ages, but it cannot be responsible for their safety or supervision. Parents and caregivers are reminded that children may be at risk in a public place and should not be left unattended in or about the Library premises.
When an unaccompanied child is found in the library, and if the parent cannot be located, staff may contact the Children's Aid Society (CAS) or the Hamilton-Wentworth Regional Police Department.
Children's Aid Society: 905-522-1121 or 905-522-8053 (after hours)
Hamilton-Wentworth Regional Police: 905-546-4925
