  • Loud, noisy, or disruptive behavior is inappropriate and the adult will be asked to remove the child from the building until such behavior is mitigated.
  • Any person under the age of 18, except registered TCC students, may not use a public computer due to non-filtered Internet access.
  • If a child is left in the library without adult supervision, Campus Police will be notified.
  • Anyone not abiding by these guidelines will be asked to leave the library.
