Library Behavior
The E.M. Gilliam Memorial Public Library is supported by the tax dollars of citizens of Wilmer, Texas, who have the right to a clean, pleasant, and safe place.  The library should be a place to engage in appropriate library activities: reading or studying, choosing books or other library materials to check out, using copy machines or the public Internet, attending library programs, or requesting assistance from library staff.  No library visitor should create problems for the other library users or himself.  Displays of unacceptable conduct will result in being asked to leave the library or possible revocation or suspension of library privileges. 

Unacceptable Conduct includes:

  • Disorderly conduct, talking loudly, or disruptive behavior, including running and fighting.
  • Failure to supervise children in your charge.
  • Harassment of any kind of other library users or of library staff.
  • Use of cell phones or other disruptive communications.
  • Drinking or eating within the library.
  • Violating the library’s Computer and Internet Access Policy.
  • Leaving one or more children under the age of 10 unattended in or on the library premises.
