The Troy Public Library is committed to providing an atmosphere where people of all ages may come to read, browse, do research, study or attend a program. This policy does not prohibit quiet conversation between patrons and/or staff members or conversations required to carry on library programs or business. It is designed to preserve a reasonably quiet atmosphere where library patrons may use library services and materials without unacceptable disturbance.
It is each patron’s responsibility to maintain their own proper behavior in order to insure protection of their individual rights and the rights and privileges of other patrons.
This policy has been established for the benefit and security of patrons, staff and the library facility. In order to provide a suitable library atmosphere, the following rules related to behavior have been established.
If a patron disregards these rules, or if a person is not responsive to the efforts of staff to enforce the rules, the patron will be asked to leave the library. If the patron refuses to leave the library, the police will be called to remove them.
