Cell Phone Policy

Policy regarding the use of cell phones in the Library

The use of cell phones in the library can often prove disruptive to customers and staff.  In order to preserve the library's mission and goals, we ask that you observe the following courtesies inside the library building:

  • Cell phones should be turned off or set to vibrate when entering the library.
  • People making calls or receiving calls on a cell phone shall leave the building or exit to the foyer area between the two sets of entry doors.
  • Library staff may require that people engaged in cell phone conversations move to the designated areas.
  • Cell phones shall not be used in the restrooms.
  • Refusal to comply with this policy or its intent may result in the offending party being required to leave the library.
