Whitefish Library Policies

2021. Animals in the Library.

2021. ANIMALS IN THE LIBRARY

Animals are not permitted in the Whitefish Community Library.  The exclusion of animals from the building is based on a concern for the safety of all library patrons, and the need to maintain a quiet contemplative environment.

Exceptions to this policy are:

1) service animals, as defined by Federal law.  That definition is as follows:

“service animal means any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability.” If the service animal disrupts the quiet and safety of the Library for other users, the owner with the service animal will be asked to leave the premises;

2) animals that are brought into the building as part of a program or event sponsored by the Whitefish Community Library.

Approved by the Whitefish Community Board of Trustees on June 9, 2021
