Rules of Conduct for Library Users

Library patrons are expected to be orderly so that other may enjoy the use of the Library undisturbed. Violators of the above may be denied use of the Library.

Cell Phone Use
Patrons are asked to silence their cell phones while patronizing the Library. While it is understandable that emergency use of cell phones may be necessary while attending the Library, patrons that must accept a phone call while using the facility are asked to exit the Library area while taking the call.

Unattended Children Policy
While Libraries are generally considered friendly, safe environments for children, parents should be aware that Libraries are public buildings where any individual may enter. In this way, the Library may be compared to a shopping mall or airport, for example, in that the person standing next to you may be your next door neighbor or they may be a perfect stranger about whom nothing is known. In addition, Library staff is hired to perform Library duties and cannot be expected to deal with a small child who might be frightened, tired or ill. Parents, not Library staff, are responsible for the behavior of children using the Library. For theses reasons, we prefer that adults supervise their children while they use the facilities.

Computer / Internet Use

Use of Library Meeting Rooms and Equipment

As a member of the NIOGA System, we will make every effort to fill requests from other members immediately unless there is a local waiting list for the material. If we borrow a book or other material from NIODA or other member libraries, we will honor the circulation rules of the lending library if they differ from our own. Any fines differing from our fine system must be made known to the patron upon borrowing the material. The responsibility of fines is not to the lending library, but to the borrowed library.

As a member of NIOGA, we will endeavor to honor the contractual commitments of NIOGA between libraries and agencies.
