(AP) -- Adults must be accompanied by children in certain sections of Evansville's public libraries.The Evansville-Vanderburgh Library Board voted Thursday to bar unaccompanied adults from children's areas as a precaution against "those who might be there for inappropriate reasons," Evelyn Walker, the library's assistant director of public service told the Evansville Courier & Press.Library director Marcia Au said there have been no reports of children being accosted in the library, but employees have been concerned about some people who are "plunking themselves down" in the children's rooms and watching the youngsters."Exceptions to the rule will be people doing research, such as teachers, or child-care workers looking for books or other materials for their classes," Walker said.Story here at Times Online."
