Rules of the Boca Raton Public Library
The Boca Raton Public Library may be used for reading, studying, or using the Library's materials, services, or equipment. All uses of the Library are subject to the following rules:
THEFT/DAMAGE TO PROPERTY
Library users observed by a staff member violating Library rules will be asked verbally to cease the violation. If a patron does not comply with the request, he or she will be asked to leave the building. If he or she refuses, Police Services will be called.
After the third instance of receiving a verbal request from staff to cease the violation, the user shall receive a written notice from the Manager of Library Services specifying the nature of the violation. Any future violation of the same rule shall result in a two-week suspension of Library privileges. Subsequent violations will result in a one-month suspension and then a three-month suspension of Library privileges.
Library users receiving a notice of suspension may within ten (10) working days appeal the ruling by written correspondence to the Manager of Library Services. The Manager of Library Services will respond to the appeal within ten (10) working days. If the appeal to the Manager of Library Services is not satisfactory, the Library user may, by written communication, make a final appeal to the Deputy Director of Recreation Services [Library and Recreation]. The Deputy Director shall respond to the user within fourteen (14) working days.
Any criminal activity, including theft or attempted theft of Library materials, will immediately be reported to the police.
