Weapons Policy

Possessing, selling, distributing, displaying or using any dangerous weapon as that term is defined in Wis. Stats. Sec. 939.22(10) upon library premises or using or threatening the use of any other object in such a manner that it may be considered a weapon is strictly forbidden.

Anyone in violation of this policy will be asked by library staff to leave the library.  Library staff will contact the Police Department immediately and request assistance if an individual(s) refuses to cooperate in a timely fashion.   Repeat or uncooperative violators of the Weapons Policy will be considered “Disruptive Customers” as outlined in the Library’s “Code of Conduct Policy” and the procedures outlined in that policy will be enacted.
