     At Orion Township Public Library we do not monitor anything which anyone checks out, including R rated movies.  When asked, we tell patrons it is their or the parent's responsibility to do so. The ratings system is voluntary, there is no legal obligation for us to enforce it.

Subject: [Michlib-l] R rated movies

When you circulate R rated movies at your library, how do you deal with children who want to check them out? Does circ staff check each DVD for a rating and make sure the child is of age?   Do children have a different card than adults?  Has the availability of R-rated movies been a problem with parents?
