Residents Barred From Property
All visitors to the Buchanan County Public Library are asked to abide by the Library Code of Conduct (Section 4.2). They are also expected to abide by our policies and procedures and all Virginia and United States laws. If a person on library property is actively breaking a law, is violent or abusive, or refuses to leave when requested by library staff, the Director or the next in Decision chain will call the appropriate authorities. Once the situation is under control, the Library Board Chair or Board member will be updated. Persons asked to leave property or escorted off property by authorities will not be permitted to return to the library or library property until that person attends a Library Board of Trustees meeting to present his or her case. The Board will determine whether the individual will be allowed to return to the library or library property.
A patron who is denied internet access because of internet policy violations may present his or her case at a Library Board of Trustees meeting. The Library Board will carefully examine documentation and other records of violation and make a determination on whether or not to allow future access.
