The Pierce County Library System’s mission is to bring the world of information and imagination to all people of our community.
These Rules of Conduct guide staff in creating and enforcing an environment that encourages all customers to use Pierce County Libraries in an appropriate and respectful manner. This policy supports staff members’ actions when a person’s behavior or activities are unreasonably interfering with others’ enjoyment of the Library.
Each person using the Library is responsible for his/her safety, the safety of children in his or her care, and the security of personal belongings. Pierce County Library System is not responsible for the safety of the users against their own acts or the acts of other Library users.
It is the intent of Pierce County Library System that enforcement of these rules will be conducted in a fair and reasonable manner. Library staff and/or local law enforcement officers have the right to intervene to stop prohibited activities and behaviors. Failure to comply with the Library’s established rules and policies could result in removal from the premises and expulsion from the Library for a period of one day to one year, or in arrest or prosecution. Violations could also result in the restriction or termination of Library privileges, including the use of Library computers and other equipment. (RCW 27.12.290)
