Arizona Libraries Crack Down on Annoyances

Anonymous Patron writes Libraries crack down on annoyances: Aggressive petition circulators and rowdy teenagers are prompting the Chandler Public Library Board to post warning signs and toughen its solicitation policies.

The board voted unanimously this week to install signs outside municipal libraries that read “Disorderly or disruptive behavior will not be tolerated” and that cite state criminal disorderly conduct laws. Members also approved a policy prohibiting “aggressive or harassing behavior” by solicitors and petition circulators that requires them to back off when patrons say “no.””
