Children & Young Adults
The Library is unable to serve children under eighteen (18) years of age unless that student is dual-enrolled at Augusta Technical College. Students, faculty, staff, and public adult patrons are not allowed to bring minors into the ITC/Library. This policy is in accordance with TSCG Procedure 4.3.2p7 labeled Children in the Workplace. https://tcsg.edu/tcsgpolicy/files/4.3.2p7.pdf The State of Georgia (through its benefits and leave programs) and the Technical College of Georgia (TCSG) (through employment-related policies, procedures, and programs) seek to provide a work-life balance that is supportive of employees and their families. The TCSG cannot, however, permit the continued or reoccurring presence of children in the workplace due to potential legal liability, health and safety concerns, and/or the potential disruption to other employees and/or to TCSG operations. For these reasons, children may not be brought to the workplace except in the circumstances referenced in Paragraph VI.A.1 Child: any individual under the age of eighteen (18). General Provisions: 1. A child may not be brought to the workplace except in the following circumstances: a. an emergency situation referenced in Paragraph VI.A.7.; b. when a child is enrolled in a technical college’s child enrichment center or group daycare home; c. when a child is participating in a technical college dual enrollment program or in a live-work project (e.g., as a client receiving dental hygiene or cosmetology services).
