In order to provide all Library users with equal access to the Library's collections and services, and to achieve the optimum and safest use of the Library facilities, the Board of Trustees has adopted these rules governing the behavior of Library users.
Library users shall be engaged in activities associated with the use of a public library while in the building. The Library is intended to be used for reading, studying, securing information, conducting research, borrowing Library materials, or attending Library authorized programs, meetings, and activities. Library users are expected to follow all Library procedures to ensure the safety of themselves and others, as well as the efficiency of all Library services.
The following activities are prohibited on Library property:
Library users are encouraged to report disruptive or dangerous behavior to staff immediately so that the appropriate steps can be taken to resolve the problem. If the safety of Library users is in jeopardy, we will take immediate action by contacting the Hellertown Police. The Library staff is authorized to ask any Library user in violation of this policy to leave immediately. The Library staff can limit or suspend, for up to thirty days, the Library privileges of anyone whose behavior is dangerous, severely disruptive, or has become chronic in nature. With the approval of the Board of Trustees, a person may be denied privileges for a period longer than thirty days. Any person with an unresolved dispute may go to the Board of Trustees.
