Concealed Carry PolicyInfraction of this policy will result in revocation of library privileges.
Whereas the Henderson Memorial Public Library is a community gathering place for life long learning, and
Whereas the Henderson Memorial Public Library has children and adults of all ages in their buildings at all times, and
Whereas the Ohio General Assembly has enacted legislation that includes an exemption for public libraries as a permissible location for concealed weapons,
Therefore, be it resolved that the Board of Trustees of the Henderson Memorial Public Library, does not permit weapons of any kind, either concealed or in plain view on its property or in its buildings, unless the owner of the weapon is a law enforcement officer, and
Be it further resolved, that the Board of Trustees of the Henderson Memorial Public Library will post the necessary notification of its status as exempt from Ohio’s Concealed Carry Legislation as required by the Ohio Revised Code.
