For Grades 7-12 New and Updated Policies at the Library To ensure that the library is an enjoyable and welcoming place for all, the Granville Public Library Board of Trustees has approved a number of policy changes. Below are key highlights to the policies. Complete policies may be found at Meeting Space Policy: As a community service, the library makes meeting spaces available to the public when rooms are not being used for library-related activities. Community groups whose purposes are non-profit, civic, cultural, or educational are encouraged to use library meeting rooms for group meetings and programs. Please note, all meetings held in the library are open to the public and may not be used to promote, advertise, or lead to the sale of a product or service. Please view the full policy for all meeting room guidelines. Patron Code of Conduct Policy: The library's code of conduct is intended to ensure a welcoming and safe environment for everyone who wishes to use library resources. Behavior becomes unacceptable when it impinges on the rights of others, when it could result in injury to oneself or others, or when it could result in damage to library resources or facilities. Please view the full policy to see rules on internet use, food/drink consumption, use of library equipment, etc., and any prohibited activities, such as tobacco use and the possession of a firearm or weapon. The library reserves the right to require anyone engaging in disruptive or prohibited behavior to leave the premises. Unattended Child Policy: The library is passionate about its role in meeting children's educational and entertainment needs and is devoted to providing a welcoming and comfortable space to learn, socialize, and play. Policies have been developed to ensure the comfort and safety of all visitors to the library. We ask that parents/caregivers (at least 14 years old) keep children 7 years and under within view at all times while enjoying the library and accompany them during programs as required. Parents/caregivers (at least 14 years old) must be confident that unaccompanied children 8 years and older are self-reliant and can independently navigate the library, can follow library rules, and are able to independently contact parent/caregivers in case of an emergency. Please view the full policy for all guidelines.
