Code of conduct for the library

Patron Behavior Policy

The Library Board has the responsibility to provide a pleasant, orderly facility conducive to concentrated and effective use of library materials and services. Its responsibility does not extend to provision of space for work or study by groups or individuals not using library materials or services.
