To Get a Library Card...

Children's Reading Table at the Lynn Public Library

All children are eligible for a library card as soon as they are able to print their first and last names. A child's application must be signed by a parent or legal guardian who shows proof of residency (driver's license, utility bill etc.). If a child applies for a card without a parent or guardian, the library will mail the application home to be signed by the responsible adult. Students in the ninth grade or older are eligible for an adult library card.

The Lynn Public Library welcomes and encourages children of all ages to utilize our services. However, the Lynn Public Library is NOT responsible for the well being of children who are left unattended in the Library. Parents/Guardians are strongly urged to accompany their children to the Library. Parents/Guardians should be aware that the Library is a public building and is no safer than any other public place or building.

Parents/Guardians are reminded that numerous, unexpected events may occur in which the Library could close without notice therefore stranding an unattended child.

The Lynn Public Library reserves the right to ask a patron to leave the building if he/she is acting in an inappropriate manner, creating a public nuisance or inhibiting the rights and privileges of others.

The Lynn Public Library staff is here strictly to help you and your children with library needs. The staff is not licensed to perform child care.

In the event an unattended child is not picked up 1/2 (one half hour) prior to closing, the library staff will attempt to notify parent or guardian. If attempts are unsuccessful, the library will notify the Lynn Police Department at least 15 minutes prior to closing.

During the school year, the library expects elementary students to be accompanied by an adult during school hours. If a child appears to be without adult supervision during school hours, the truancy officer will be notified.
