Public use of Library Facilities

Elevator Policy

There will be no restrictions on the use of the elevator unless library staff observes it is being used as a source of entertainment. As a result, patrons and visitors may be restricted to use of the stairway only. The elevator must be available for use by patrons and visitors unable to climb stairs.

Americans with Disabilities Act

It is the policy of Colfax-Perry Township Public Library to comply with all the relevant and applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Public Meetings

Colfax-Perry Township Public Library offers meeting space to civic, community, or educational organizations (whose purpose is non-commercial, non-partisan, and non-profit) in the Library as a community service, at no charge. No admission fee may be charged for any meeting, except fees to cover actual costs of materials or supplies used during the meeting or workshop. Reservations may be made in person or by phone and are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Meetings may be scheduled during regular Library hours, respecting other library patrons’ expectations for a quiet environment. Meetings scheduled before or after regular library hours must be supervised by library staff. Because no separate room is available for public meetings, special consideration must be exercised by the Library and by the organization. The Library assumes no responsibility for personal belongings of persons attending the meetings or for injuries incurred during non-library meetings.

Final approval regarding public meetings is made by the Library Board of Trustees.

Driveway and Parking

There is one designated handicapped parking space for use by vehicles that have a disability license plate or display a handicap permit.

The Library driveway is to be used for dropping off books in the book return or dropping off patrons at the door, and the vehicle should immediately vacate the driveway. Delivery vehicles are authorized to park only for the time of pick up and/or deliveries.


The safety and well-being of employees and patrons is a priority. Colfax-Perry Township Public Library makes every effort to comply with all federal and state workplace safety requirements. Each employee and visitor is expected to obey safety rules and exercise caution and common sense in all work activities.
