Library Policies - Library Rules of Conduct


The library welcomes all members of the community, and asks that all visitors: respect other people’s right to use the library; respect library staff; and respect library materials.

  • Treat library materials and furniture with care.
  • Use beverages with lids only and away from computers.
  • Secure bicycles and other large items outside the library.
  • Bring service animals only.
  • Silence cell phones.
  • Keep personal belongings from obstructing access to library materials and spaces.
  • Note that children under 9 years must be accompanied by a person 14 years of age or older.
  • Refrain from sleeping in the library.
  • Understand that unattended items may be removed by Library Staff.

Violators of the Library Rules of Conduct may be asked to leave and/or photographed to assist in identification.

A copy of the complete Patron Conduct and Suspension Policy is available at any service desk.
