Alma library bans e-cigarettes, companion pets

“The Alma Public Library is taking some proactive steps by banning two things from its building: e-cigarettes and companion pets. Both items, which are sort of “signs of our time” have in recent months brought up questions for both patrons and employees. Bryan Dinwoody, the director and librarian for the library said that as far as e-cigarettes were concerned, the board thought it best to be consistent. “We had some people asking if they could use (e-cigarettes) in the library, and it brought up a lot of issues as far as regulations,” he said. “There’s still a cloud produced; some people are sensitive to smells. It’s just not good for a public building.” (via The Morning Sun)
