Respect is defines as ‘due regard for the feelings, wishes, rights, or traditions of others.’ As a Young Adult Services Manager who has an extensive background in health and wellness and health education, I am aware of the need for all people to show and receive respect.
The Mancos Library has a policy on responsibilities and conduct for patrons. This is for all patrons, all inclusive as libraries are it cannot be any other way.
The main point I would like to share is as follows; ‘Individuals on library property will, at all times, show respect for themselves, other library users, staff and all property of the library.’
The library keeps all policies at the front desk and anyone can ask to view them. I have also posted the Patron Responsibilities and Conduct Policy on the Teen Area Bulletin Board.
Please, have consideration for all people and property! Thank you!
