Child Accompaniment
In general, parents should not view the library as an alternative to daycare or afterschool care. Staff are not in the position to supervise children except when in scheduled library programs. Understand that the library does not act in loco parentis (in place of the parent) which is the standard held in the public schools. More Info

Videoconferencing
The Hartland Public Library videoconferencing system may be used by individuals and groups on a first-come, first-served basis. Groups must follow our meeting room policy, with the exceptions that for-profit groups may use a meeting room if they are using the videoconferencing system, and videoconferencing meetings do not need to be open to the public. Groups may not use videoconferencing equipment if the primary purpose is to sell a product or promote a business.

Users of the equipment must attend a videoconferencing training session and should arrange a training session with the library director at least one week in advance. Groups must also fill out a meeting room booking form.
