Children in libraries

Sunshine Coast Libraries encourages children to use the resources and facilities on offer. Supervision of children in the library is the responsibility of their parents or guardian.

Sunshine Coast Libraries staff do not have the required qualifications, nor the legal responsibility to care for children who are left unattended.

Parents and guardians are responsible for information or materials children may access through the Library Service including websites and online information.

If a child, under the age of 12 is found to be unattended, the library may take action to resolve this situation.
