Supervised Visitation Policy

Switzerland County Public Library

Supervised Visitation Policy

The Switzerland County Public Library strives to be a clean, pleasant, and safe place for selecting materials, reading, researching, studying, writing, and attending Library or community sponsored programs and meetings. The Library acknowledges that a variety of agencies use the Library as a meeting place for supervised and court appointed visitations and Child and Family Team Meetings. As the Library is a public space, the Library welcomes patrons who wish to use their facilities for this purpose so long as they follow standard patron behavior policies. Patrons are welcome to utilize the public space or meeting rooms for visitation purposes as long as they adhere to the following policies:

  • Patron Behavior Policy
  • Unattended Children Policy
  • Child/Patron Behavior Policy
  • Meeting Room Policy (if applicable)

It is the responsibility of parents to monitor their child’s behavior. Running and horseplay, swearing or cursing, and damage or destruction of property are not allowed. The Library reserves the right to ask any patrons in violation of these standards and policies to move to the meeting room (if available) or to exit the Library for the day. Patrons also may be banned from the Library for a specific amount of time or permanently in the case of behavior that is deemed dangerous, threatening, destructive, or unlawful.

With everyone’s cooperation, the Library will continue to be a pleasant environment for all of our users.
