Oregon Trail Library District

Appropriate Library Use Policy

The Oregon Trail Library District, OTLD, is supported by the taxes of the people of Boardman, Heppner, and Irrigon who expect each of our facilities to be clean, comfortable, and safe places for selecting materials, reading, researching, studying, writing, and attending Library or community sponsored programs and meetings. To this end, OTLD is responsible for establishing rules of conduct to protect the rights and safety of OTLD patrons, volunteers, and staff, and for preserving and protecting the OTLD’s materials, equipment, facilities, and grounds.

Enforcement of these rules will be conducted in a fair and reasonable manner. OTLD staff will intervene to stop prohibited activities and behaviors. Failure to comply with the OTLD’s established rules, regulations, and policies could result in removal from the premises and expulsion from OTLD for a period of one day to one year, or in arrest or prosecution. Violations could also result in the restriction and/or termination of OTLD privileges, including the use of OTLD computers and other equipment. Expulsion for more than one week may be appealed in writing to the Library Director.

For the comfort and safety of patrons, volunteers, and staff, and the protection of OTLD property, the following actions are examples of conduct not allowed on OTLD property.
