The Library has the responsibility to provide a pleasant, orderly facility conducive to concentrated and effective use of library materials and services. The library staff has the responsibility for maintaining order in the library to assure a pleasant experience for all users. To meet this responsibility, the staff will need to intervene courteously, but firmly, in situations at the library that present danger to the safety of persons or property, interfere with the rights of others, constitute disturbing or inappropriate uses of the library and that involve the commission of illegal acts.
