No Smoking Law Policy

No Smoking SymbolThe NYS legislation that prohibits smoking within one hundred feet of the entrances, exits or outdoor areas of any public or association library went into effect on June 19. This mandates all libraries post appropriate signage and designate an agent to inform non-employees when they are in violation of the law.

If your library does not have a policy regarding smoking on library grounds or you need to update the language to be in compliance with the new regulations please visit to access sample policies and development questions.
