Q. Child Policy
Campus facilities are designed for use by members of the campus community. The campus community includes students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The Shapiro Library welcomes children of the community sufficiently mature to not disturb others' study and accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.
Children 13 years and younger must not be left unattended in the library.
The safety and security of children is very important and is the responsibility of the parent or adult caregiver. The Shapiro Library is open to the public, a situation that can present risks to children. Staff cannot assume responsibility for children's safety and comfort when they are unattended.
Please note: Parents and adult caregivers must monitor all activities and behaviors of their children while they are in the library and are responsible for any damage to property done by the child. SNHU students, faculty, and staff have priority use of computers and group study rooms. If a child is left unattended in the library, or in the even of an emergency situation, staff will notify Public Safety.
