Conduct Ordinance

The Peotone Public Library is dedicated to providing access to knowledge and information through reading, writing, and quiet contemplation, providing patrons the right to use materials and services without being disturbed or impeded, and providing patrons and employees a secure and comfortable environment. The Public Library Act provides the Board of Library Trustees with the general power to carry out the spirit and intent of the Act in establishing and maintaining the library and providing library services and the specific power to “exclude from the use of the library any person who willfully violates an ordinance or regulation prescribed.”

The Board of Library Trustees of the Peotone Public Library establishes its conduct ordinance as follows:

Section 1.
A patron who engages in any activity which materially disrupts the use of library facilities, collections, or services by patrons or materially disrupts the ability of the staff to perform its duties shall cease such activity immediately upon request by library personnel.

Section 2.
In such instances involving minors, identification will be requested and the incident may be reported to the parent or guardian.

Section 3.
If, following a request, the patron fails or refuses to comply or responds to the request in an abusive fashion, he or she will be required to leave the library premises immediately for the balance of that calendar day. If he or she fails to leave, the police will be summoned.

Section 4.
Library personnel will give two written warning notices to a disruptive patron. The third written warning will be a permanent suspension from the use of the library and he/she will not be permitted on the Peotone Public Library premises. Parents or guardians of minors will be notified in writing of any instances in which a minor is required to leave the library and advised of the consequences of any further instances.

Section 5.
Parents wishing to appeal such action may do so upon written request to the Board of Library Trustees.

Section 6.
In the event a patron barred from the use of the library attempts entry to the library, the police will be summoned and informed of the prior action.

Section 7.
This Ordinance shall take effect immediately upon enactment and approval according to law and be in full force and effect thereafter. A copy shall be posted within three days of enactment at the library and the secretary shall maintain a certified copy in the official records of the library available for public inspection.
