It is the policy of the Pierce County Library System Board of Trustees to maintain an environment which is conducive to the public use and the effective operation of the library system's public facilities and services. The Board recognizes the need to support staff members who carry out appropriate actions necessary for the maintenance of a pleasant, harmonious, efficient and safe environment for the public and staff, as well as for the protection of the staff, facilities, materials and equipment.
Therefore, the Board of Trustees authorizes the Executive Director to develop and implement procedures, practices, and rules, consonant with applicable statutes and good human relations, which will aid and ensure such an environment.
When necessary, library staff are authorized to require anyone who violates such rules of conduct to leave the library premises. If that person continues to violate these rules or if that person is engaged in criminal or hazardous behavior on library premises, the Board authorizes library staff to deny permission for that person to enter its facilities for a specified period of time, as authorized under RCW 27.12.290.
