Lone Star College-Kingwood Library serves as your pathway to knowledge. The Library provides information and resources to enrich lives and strengthen the community through innovative services within and beyond our walls. In order to achieve this, a Behavior Policy has been established by the Library. This policy has been created to ensure the safety and rights of our patrons. Customers not in compliance with the Library’s Behavior Policy will be asked by Library staff to leave the library, and, when appropriate, members of the staff will contact the police.
A. Disruptive Behavior

Unaccompanied Minors aged 15 and under will be reported to College police and an officer will attempt to locate the minor’s parent/guardian to accompany or remove the child. All Minors on College premises are subject to relevant College policies and procedures.
