No animals are allowed inside the building unless they are certified as service animals in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Emotional support animals are not considered service animals, so they are not permitted inside the Library.
If you bring an animal into the Library building, Library staff may approach you to ask you the following two questions, as permitted by the Department of Justice, to ascertain if your animal is a service animal:
- Is the service animal required because of a disability?
- What work or task has the service animal been trained to perform?
Staff are not allowed to request any documentation for the service animal, require that the service animal demonstrate its task, or inquire about the nature of the service animal handler’s disability.
If you are approached by other Library users regarding your approved service animal, please ask for assistance at the Main Services Desk.
