Yesterday, in the library thread I said:I have not encountered a young child (say, under 8) left alone at the library yet...Wow. Did I ever speak too soon. I didn't work last night, so all of this is second hand, but apparently a parent left a 5 year old by herself at our puppet show last night. According to my coworkers, a woman came up to the desk last night after the show with a 5 year old and said the girl had been wandering around the parking lot, in the dark, looking for her mom. When the girl was questioned, she said she didn't know where her mom was, but she did know her phone number. They called, and then waited with her until her mom showed up. Apparently a woman in the library happened to recognize the girl, and when the mom showed up she blessed her out for leaving her kid there alone. None of my coworkers had a chance to even explain our policy before the woman stormed with her daughter.This little girl could have been hit by a car. She could have been kidnapped. I don't want to think about all the awful things that could have happened.This upsets me to no end, but I am grateful to the woman who brought the girl in from the parking lot, and I admire the woman who blessed the mother out for stupidly risking her child's life.thanks for letting me vent,laura
