[ARCHIVED] Revised Policy for Storytime at Coronado Public Library

Coronado Public LIbrary building

In response to recent feedback from some members of the community, the City of Coronado has revised its practices for sharing children’s programming content in the Coronado Public Library, which now include: 

  • Scheduled topics for the Story Time programs will be posted a month in advance on the library website.
  • Library staff will review Story Time books prior to the readings. Selected Story Time books will be displayed at the front desk 15 minutes prior to the start time to provide parents the opportunity to review. 

These changes will put more information into parents’ hands to help them make informed decisions about which Story Time topics are best suited for their families.

“Our library is a community hub, it provides a lot for us all and it is a place of welcome,” said City Manager Tina Friend. “We have done this to put more power and control into parents’ hands. We believe in the ethos of being a place for all, having a lot of viewpoints represented, and letting people curate their reading for themselves.”

The library’s policy that any child under the age of eight must be accompanied by a parent or guardian will remain in place to ensure material accessed is approved by the child’s family.  The children’s section of the library is designed for ages zero to 12 years of age.
