The Board of Trustees and staff of the Oconomowoc Public Library are committed to providing excellent customer service in a safe and inviting atmosphere. Staff and Library patrons share the responsibility to maintain this atmosphere at all times. The following guidelines define those behaviors and activities that are and are not allowed on Library property.
Patrons who fail to follow this policy and/or engage in conduct deemed inappropriate by Library staff are subject to removal from Library property and/or restriction of Library privileges.
Staff will issue a verbal warning to those not following the Library rules or being continually disruptive. Staff will give a second verbal warning if the behavior persists. If the behavior continues, staff will ask the patron to leave the Library. Recurring or extreme incidents could result in expulsion from the Library. Staff may expel a patron immediately for serious infractions, without the first and/or second warnings.
Staff will provide expelled patrons an “Expulsion Appeal” form, which the patron must complete and return electronically or in the outdoor book return by the close of the next business day.
Staff may summon law enforcement for assistance with enforcing this policy.
