Library Behavior

The Clay Center Carnegie Library encourages people of all ages to visit the library.  Those using the library and its resources have the right to expect a safe and comfortable environment that supports appropriate library services.

People demonstrating disruptive behavior will be required to leave the library after one warning from library staff.  Disruptive behavior includes but is not limited to:  noisy, boisterous actions; inappropriate behavior including eating, smoking, running, or loud talking; misuse of library property; uncooperative attitude; or actions that deliberately annoy others to prevent the legitimate use of the library and its resources.  Abusive language and behavior toward staff will not be tolerated.

Personal appliances, such as cell phones, computers, music players, and handheld gaming devices may be used if the noise level is low and use does not interfere with others.
