Guidelines for Usage

The Idea Lab is a part of the WCPL system. Therefore the same rules and code of conduct apply to it and its patrons. However, these guidelines are also in place due to the unique nature of the Idea Lab:

  • Materials are to be paid for when they are used/provided and not at a later date.
  • All children 12 and under MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times.
  • The Library cannot be held responsible for when files do not print/cut correctly, pottery breaks, etc.
