Library Behavior Policy
The Nineveh Public Library is open to people of all ages for the use of its available resources. All those using the library can expect to use the library and its resources in a safe environment that is appropriate for the services offered.
People who exhibit disruptive behavior will be asked to leave the premises after one verbal warning, and if the disruptive behavior continues, the appropriate law enforcement agency will be contacted. Disruptive behavior is defined as, but not limited to loud noises, inappropriate language, aggressive behavior, running, smoking, damaging library property, or deliberate annoyance of other library patrons and/ or staff.
Battery-operated personal appliances are permitted as long as they are not audible and/ or disruptive to other patrons. Appliances that plug in are not permitted due to the lack of electrical outlets.
Young children under the age of 12 need to be accompanied by an adult. Staff is not responsible for supervision of young children. The appropriate law enforcement officials will be contacted in the vent that a child is left unsupervised without an adult or guardian. Under no circumstances will library staff take a child out of the building or transport children to another location.
Approved by the Nineveh Public Library Board of Trustees on April 8, 2002.
