Item No: 4.C.2.
Meeting Date: November 26, 2012
From: Lucy Gangone, Library Director
Subject: Resolution adopting the Lake County BCC Policy “Patron Code of Conduct.”
Staff recommends adoption of the Lake County BCC Policy “Patron Code of Conduct.”
This policy defines the uniform rules of patron conduct for all libraries in the Lake County Library System. The policy lists the specific activities that are prohibited on Library premises, and includes the actions staff may take in response to these activities. The policy also describes supervision requirements for children in the Library, emphasizing that the responsibility for the safety, behavior and access to library resources for children rests with the parent or responsible caregiver. The “Patron Code of Conduct” policy replaces the Leesburg Public Library’s “Code of Conduct” and “Safe and Secure Policy for Children,” with all major provisions of the two policies incorporated into the new “Patron Code of Conduct” policy.
The Library Advisory Board voted on November 7, 2012 to recommend this policy to the City Commission for its adoption.
1. Approve the resolution authorizing the adoption of the Lake County BCC Policy on “Patron Code of Conduct,” or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
There is no fiscal impact.
