The Library Board strives to develop fair policies for all library patrons. Federal, State, and City laws take precedence over any policy here stated.
The policies are continually reviewed and updated. Any changes are approved by the Library Board and become effective immediately.
Any challenges to the policy of the Antlers Public Library or disputes against the application of these policies should be emailed to the current Library Board at AntlersLibraryBoard@gmail.com. The concerns will be put on the next regularly scheduled board meeting agenda. Their decision after due consideration is considered final.
