Harassment & Lewd Behavior Policy

Mae S. Bruce Library

Harassment and Lewd Behavior Policy

Patrons and staff have the right to enjoy an environment free from harassment or lewd conduct.  Anyone, including patrons, who harasses staff or another patron will be temporarily expelled from the Library and a report will be filed with the director.

 Lewd acts and sexual misconduct are not appropriate on Library property. Those who commit minor acts, such as teenagers who “make out” in the Library, will be given one warning and then asked to leave.  Serious acts and acts involving minors will be reported immediately to the proper authorities including, but not limited to, the director and local police.

 Repeated acts of harassment or acts that may escalate into violent or illegal actions will be reported to the proper authorities including, but not limited to, the library director and/or local police and may result in permanent expulsion of the person(s) involved in such acts from the library.
