Darien Library recognizes the benefit to the students and parents of the community for tutoring to be allowed within the Library. The following procedures are intended to provide a balance between the use of the Library by tutors and their clients, and the use of the Library by other members of the community. 

In order for Darien Library to assure that tutoring is in line with the Library's service to the community, the following is applicable to all tutoring with the Library: 

  • Either the tutor, or the client, or both, must be a resident of Darien.
  • All tutoring must take place in the Fiction section or by the Café on the First Floor of the Library, except by prior written agreement. Tutors are expected to restrict their use of space to an acceptable minimum, and observe all Library regulations. 
  • Library staff will enforce the procedures as necessary, and will require tutors to move immediately if they are observed tutoring in other areas.
