Patron Code of Conduct Policy

The Calloway County Public Library is supported by the taxes of the citizens of the Calloway County who have a right to expect the library to be clean, pleasant, and safe for selecting materials, reading, studying, researching, writing, and attending programs and meetings. 

This Code of Conduct is intended to encourage behavior that supports the library’s mission to provide the best possible resources in a warm, welcoming environment. Behavior becomes unacceptable when it interferes with this mission, impinges on the rights of others, causes damage to buildings or equipment, or is hazardous in any way. 

Those willing to modify unacceptable behavior are always welcome to stay in the library, however those unable to comply will be asked to leave. If necessary, the authorities will be called.

The Calloway County Public Library Board reserves the right to alter this policy without prior notice.
