For their own safety children should not be left unsupervised whilst at the library.

The responsibility for the safety of children visiting the library remains with their parent or carer. Ipswich City Council does not accept responsibility for any injury sustained by a child whilst at the library complex caused or brought about by lack of supervision by a parent, guardian or accompanying adult.


Supervision of material read or accessed by persons under 18 years of age remains the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian.

Ipswich Libraries endeavours to provide an unbiased source of knowledge, information, and ideas through a comprehensive and balanced collection – both in print and online – while responding to a broad range of community needs. The collection includes material in print, audio-visual, and digital formats. The service is obligated to comply with the decisions made under State and Federal Law, including those by the Australian Classification boards.

Ipswich Libraries supports and endorses the Australian Library and Information Association’s (ALIA) Statement on free access to information.
