The St. Francis Public Library welcomes patrons to use the Library’s gaming systems. Children 5 and under are allowed to play under the direct supervision of a Parent/Caregiver who is 14 years or older.

The opportunities for gaming are being offered to make the Library more appealing to youth and teens, to encourage them to visit the library; to develop their love of books and reading; and to expose them to all of the other services the library has to offer. The service is also being offered to adults to demonstrate the value of a non-traditional library service.

Patrons who desire to use the library’s gaming systems must read and agree to the Gaming Policy and Rules of Conduct before using the system(s). The Rules of Conduct are set up to ensure proper and safe use of the gaming systems and equipment, and to allow fair access for the Library’s patrons. Users who fail to follow the Gaming Policy and Rules of Conduct or who do not treat gaming systems and equipment with care may lose their gaming privileges and/or all of their library privileges indefinitely depending upon the severity of the offense.  The librarian holds the right to make the final decision in all situations.

Users of the library’s gaming systems and equipment agree that the St. Francis Public Library is not responsible for any loss or damage suffered by the user as a result of using or participating in gaming, and the user agrees to indemnify and hold the library and its employees, volunteers, and Trustees harmless from any damages including: personal injuries to any party or damages to any property alleged to be a consequence of the user’s use of the Library’s gaming systems or equipment.
