Regarding Use of Library Facilities While Under the Influence of Alcohol or Illegal Substances

Fargo Public Library endeavors to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all patrons. The presence of individuals who possess, consume and/or are under the influence of alcohol and/or other unlawful or illegal mood-altering substances on library property is not compatible with the library’s goal of providing a safe and welcoming environment. Individuals who are observed consuming and/or possessing and/or under the influence of such substances will be subject to an order either temporarily or permanently barring the individual from entry into all library locations per the discretion of Library Administration. The permanent barring from library location will be enforced by a no-trespass order.
