The Indiana Free Library welcomes the use of its facilities and services by all children; however, parents and caregivers are reminded that the library is a public building, and their children must be supervised as they would be in any public place. While librarians are mandated reporters, they are not responsible for the care of children. Children eight (8) years of age or Younger must be accompanied at all times.
