Here’s a good idea for any community: Keep those darn kids out of the library! Certainly don’t want them milling around books and such. Next thing you know, they might want to take one home with ’em, just like a bottle of scotch. Luckily this small North Carolina regional library knows what’s good for kids. Read on!
The Hyconeechee Regional Library staff would like to thank all of our customers for making 2009 Summer Reading a success! We hope that you will continue your library visits throughout the rest of the summer and into the upcoming school year.
To ensure a safe and enjoyable library visit for all, the Hyconeechee Regional Library staff would like to remind you of our Safe Child Policy. All Hyconeechee Regional Libraries require that children 12 years of age and under be accompanied by a parent or caretaker when visiting the library. Parents/Caretakers are responsible for the child’s safety and behavior at all times while in the library building.
If library staff is aware of an unattended child, they will try to contact a parent or legal guardian. If unable to locate a parent or guardian, staff will contact appropriate authorities.

Thank you for using the Hyconeechee Regional Library System.
And thank you, Hyconeechee regional libarians! You know what I always say: A safe child is an illiterate child.
