|Building and Property Use Policy, Rev. 2011|
The Tippecanoe County Public Library Board of Trustees, Administration and Staff are committed to providing library users with a setting that is conducive to library activities. It is intended that these will be activities usually associated with public library use and that support TCPL's roles of Reference Center, Educational Support Center, Early Education Center and Popular Materials Center. Therefore, any person whose behavior does not support such a setting may be asked to leave library property resulting in the loss of access to Library services. Decisions concerning acceptable behavior of library users will be made by the Library Director or the Director's designee.
The following list, that is by no means complete, includes examples of behaviors for which any individual may be asked to leave the library or library properties, or have library services access revoked:
Members of the library staff will enforce this policy. When deemed appropriate by the staff member(s), the appropriate authorities will be contacted. Repeat violators and/or those who refuse to leave will be subject to arrest and prosecution under Section 35-43-2-2 of the Indiana Code entitled "Criminal Trespass."
These policies and rules as stated above will be posted in a public area of the library building.
