RULES OF CONDUCT
The library is a public place where everyone in the community is encouraged to borrow materials, access online resources and the Internet, reflect, study, read and relax.
All library users, including employees, are expected to conduct themselves in a manner which makes the library a safe, comfortable, and welcoming place for all.
Please be courteous to others when using cell phones: turn off sound on arrival; cell phone calls are permitted in the lobby only; texting is permitted throughout the building.
Activities which are inappropriate include, but are not limited to: loud talking, shouting, profanity, boisterous behavior, horseplay, running, loitering, destroying or defacing library property, soliciting, sleeping, gambling, and disturbing or harassing either visitors or staff.
Food and drink purchased at the Bookmark Café may be consumed in the library (with the exception of the computer areas), but outside food and drink is not permitted.
Bicycles, scooters, and grocery carts are not permitted in the library.
Animals are not permitted in the library, with the exception of service animals.
Library users who participate in this type of conduct will be asked to stop this behavior, and may be asked to leave the library should they not cooperate. The police may be contacted for assistance.
Violators of these rules who do not leave the library are subject to arrest under the criminal trespass section of the New York State Penal Code, and may risk further legal action, such as being banned from the library for a period of time.
