Children's Use of the Libraries


The resources of the Libraries are primarily intended for use by Boston College students, staff and faculty. However, young children accompanied by an adult are welcome in the libraries.

Parents or adult guardians who bring young children to the library are responsible for their protection and safety and must never leave children unattended. Children cannot be monitored and supervised by the staff; therefore the safety of unattended children cannot be guaranteed. When a young child is in the library unattended by a parent or adult guardian, university police will be called to ensure the safety of the child and to assist in locating a parent or guardian.

It is also against university policy for faculty, staff or students to log onto the campus network with a BC user name and password for the use of others, including children.
