Woman using photocopierHamilton City Libraries are for everyone to enjoy, and we aim to provide a safe and comfortable environment for customers and staff.

We ask our customers to show respect for other people and their right to have a positive experience by:

  • Speaking and behaving appropriately, without swearing, shouting, or offending other customers.

  • Co-operating with our staff and respecting any requests they make.

  • Being drug and alcohol-free.

  • Being considerate of other people’s property, including library furniture and equipment.

Customers may be asked to leave the library if their actions fall outside these guidelines, or cause concern for either other library users or our staff.
