What can libraries can do to promote the safety of both staff and the public? ISL staff will cover Indiana gun laws and how they impact libraries. We will provide appropriate language for library policies regarding patron behavior and clarify what libraries can and can’t regulate. Library Director Mary K. Emmrich will discuss the process Newton County Public Library went through last year to develop an active shooter policy and share the outcome.

Both in our schools, and increasingly in our places of work, worship, and recreation, individuals with only violent intent bring unexpected death and destruction into our daily lives.
