Policy Watch: Library User Behavior Policy

The Saugus Public Library encourages users of all ages to use its facilities and resources for research, reference, study, reading, recreation and browsing.  Good public service requires that the library environment be open to all, but conducive to study, reading, and research.  This necessitates the willingness of all library users to be considerate of the rights of others to work safely and undisturbed.  To ensure that such an environment exists, the library has established guidelines for behavior within the library.

The Library’s Board of Trustees, at their May 9th, 2024 meeting, approved two revisions to the Library’s User Behavior Policy.

The first revision adds language pertaining to public displays of affection. The second prohibits patrons from lying down on the floor or on Library furnishings.
