Library Patron Behavior

To allow all patrons of the Lincoln Park Public Library to use its facilities to the fullest extent during regularly scheduled hours, the Library Board of Trustees has adopted the following rules and regulations:

PATRONS SHALL:

  • ENGAGE IN ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF THE PUBLIC LIBRARY
    Patrons not reading, studying, or using library materials may be required to leave the building.
  • RESPECT THE RIGHTS OF OTHER PATRONS
    Patrons shall not harass or annoy others through noisy or boisterous activities, by staring at another person with the intent to annoy that person, by following another person about the building with the intent to annoy that person, by playing audio equipment so that others can hear it, by singing or talking loudly to others or in monologues, or by behaving in a manner which can be reasonably expected to disturb others.

PATRONS SHALL NOT:

  • Consume food or beverages, smoke, or use tobacco or tobacco products
  • Be under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Engage in any illegal activity while on library premises
  • Interfere with the use of the library by other patrons, or interfere with library employees’ performance of their duties
  • Deface or mar library materials
    Materials shall be defined as books, magazines, newspapers, recordings, or other items of the library collection. Nor shall they deface, mar, or in any way destroy or damage library furnishings, walls, machines, or other library property.
  • Bring pets or animals into the library
    Guide dogs for the handicapped will be permitted.

Any materials removed from the library must be checked out on a valid library card or through other standard library procedures, such as InterLibrary Loan.

Each patron shall be responsible for any fines, fees, or other charges due in accordance with the library’s standard schedules. Failure to pay these fines will result in the suspension of borrowing privileges.

Any patron not abiding by these or other rules and regulations may be required to leave the library premises. Library employees may contact the Lincoln Park Police Department if deemed advisable.

Any patron who violates these or other rules and regulations may be denied the privilege of access to the library by the Library Board of Trustees, on the recommendation of the Library Director. A patron whose privileges have been denied may have the decision reviewed by the Board of Trustees.
