Newport libraries can remove anyone who ‘lounges’ or smells bad

“City library employees will now be able to ask people to leave if they interfere with other customers, hang out too long on the sofa or even smell bad. A new policy, approved Tuesday night by a unanimous City Council with Leslie Daigle absent, also has rules against bikes being parked or locked anywhere other than bike racks. The regulations were prompted by concerns about customers who continually misuse the library facilities, argue with staff when confronted about sleeping or lounging on the furniture and parking bikes and shopping carts in front of entrances.”

    Bums need their own room, just like the noisy, smelly children. Equality for all!
