Children in the Northwestern Libraries
The Northwestern Libraries' collections and services were developed for its community of academic users; therefore, not all materials are appropriate for K-12 students. The libraries operate within an adult, unsupervised environment. The library staff is not responisble for unsupervised children. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent, adult care-giver, or under the supervision of a public school or university sponsored activity which has been arranged with the library staff prior to use.
