Patron Conduct

To better serve all library users, the Lillooet Area Library Association has established certain standards of behaviour.  Staff members are authorized by the Board to ensure that, in fairness to other users, patrons comply with acceptable standards of behaviour.  If patrons fail to comply with a request to modify their behaviour, they will be required to leave the premises.  Further action may be taken at the discretion of the Director or senior staff member on duty.

Unacceptable behaviour includes, but is not limited to, the following examples:

  • Introducing a bio-hazard- attending facility or program when ill or displaying symptoms of serious illness
  • Abandonment – leaving young children unattended
  • Vandalism of library property (facilities or equipment)
  • Vandalism of library materials
  • Harassment – physical, sexual or verbal abuse of library patrons or staff
  • Intoxication resulting from using alcohol or drugs
  • Loitering
  • Obscene language
  • Smoking
  • Soliciting for any purpose
  • Physical aggression
  • Unacceptably loud behaviour
  • Inappropriate use of the public computers
