NSCC Library Policies

Unattended Children

Although the NSCC Libraries welcome all responsible users, our collections and facilities are intended primarily for our college community, especially our students. Apart from the juvenile collection at the Lynn Campus Library, our resources are geared to a college audience.

Therefore, although children who are accompanied by an adult are permitted in the NSCC Libraries, they must be supervised by an adult at all times. Parents, or other supervising adults, will be held responsible for their child's behavior. Loud or disruptive children and their accompanying adult will be asked to leave. If the situation continues, Campus Police will be notified. See Guidelines for Conduct. Parents will be held responsible for any damage caused to library property by their children. At no time should unsupervised children be in the library. Library staff cannot be responsible for unattended children in the library.

High school students may use the computers for homework and research purposes only. See Computer Use Policy.
