Copyright Policy

In accordance with the Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code), the Way Public Library’s policy is as follows:


Meeting Room Policy

As a service to our patrons, the meeting rooms of Way Public Library are open for use by the community if they are not needed for library programs. The primary function of the meeting rooms is to promote the library's mission.

Effective January 1, 2015:  The pricing structure of meeting rooms and rented equipment has changed.  Please review this policy carefully.  If you are a paying customer, we now require that you view, sign, and return our policy to us before booking a room or equipment.


Unattended Children Policy

Children are always welcome and encouraged to visit Way Public Library.  While the library staff is concerned about children's safety and well being, they do not act in loco parents.  Parents and caregivers are responsible for monitoring the activities and behavior of their children.  Children under the age of 7 may not be left unattended in any part of the library.  An exception to this would be children attending a library-sponsored program.  A parent or caregiver must remain in the library and meet the child at the end of the program.  Young children left on their own often become frightened or anxious.  If a young child is found without an adult, a staff member will attempt to locate his/her parent or caregiver.


Rules of Conduct

To maintain an atmosphere appropriate for work, study, and enjoyment for all library users and staff, the following policy on behavior in the library and on the library property has been established.


Internet Use Policy

The Way Public Library in keeping with its mission provides public Internet access and access to the resources of the Ohio Public Library Information Network.

This service may be used to access resources, engage in communication, or conduct activities available on the Internet or the Ohio Public Library Information Network.
