In accordance with Chapter 692A of Subtitle 1 of Title 16 of the Code of Iowa, the Board of Trustees prohibits the presence of sex offenders convicted of sex offenses against minors upon or within 300 feet of library property without written permission of the Library Director.
The Library Director may only give written permission as the result of a vote at a meeting of the Board of Trustees at which a quorum is present.
Persons barred from library property under the law remain entitled to library service. It is the responsibility of the patron to arrange for a courier to select, check out, and return materials to the library through possession of the patron's card.
Persons barred from library property under the law will not be served by the library's homebound delivery service.
Violations of this policy will be immediately reported to law enforcement.
