Library Hours: 7:30am to 8:00pm
Eastern Michigan University Library
Children in the Library
All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult while in the Library unless enrolled as a student or participating in an EMU sponsored program. We cannot guarantee the safety or protection of unescorted children in the building. If a parent or guardian cannot be located, the University's Department of Public Safety will be contacted. When appropriate, exceptions may be made at the discretion of library personnel.
Access to, or use of, the Internet by minor children is solely the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian. Unlike many public libraries, computer users at the EMU Library do not access the Internet through a filter. While some local city and county policies may require public libraries to provide filtered Internet access to minors, EMU libraries do not use filtering software because this is a university library and does not offer services to children.
Effective Date: February 12, 2015.
Direct questions about this policy to: Library Administration.
