At the St. John’s University Libraries, we strive to create an
environment conducive to reading, study, research, consultation,
and quiet collaboration. Children related to current St. John’s
students, staff, faculty or administrators – that is, those
entitled to a University-issued StormCard – are welcome in the
Libraries when the accompanying adult StormCard holder comes for
research and other academic activities in the Libraries. The
accompanying adult is responsible for the safety, behavior, and
supervision of children at all times in the Libraries. All library
patrons, including children, are expected to respect library
property and their fellow patrons as indicated in the Library
Code of Conduct. Children and minors are not eligible for
Children must be under direct supervision at all
times. Should a child be unattended for any reason, Public
Safety will be contacted and the child will be escorted to the Public Safety Office
while the accompanying adult is contacted. A child will not be
allowed to leave the library without an accompanying adult or a St.
John’s University Public Safety Officer.
High school age minors [14-18 years of age] are allowed in the
Libraries unaccompanied only if they are a registered St. John’s
student with a valid StormCard or a student in the College Advantage Program
with valid ID issued by the University.
