Paging Public for Telephone Calls

In order to maintain a reasonably quiet library, protect minors using the library, and to comply with Minnesota Statute Data Practices Act, Library staff is unable to accept requests to page patrons in the building.

The library's public address system is to be used for the following:

  • Library closing messages
  • Library emergency messages such as evacuation, weather warnings, calls for a physician
  • Informing staff that they have a service call
  • Requests for additional staff assistance in a public area
  • Announcement of library programs

All library users are requested to advise people who might call them that the library does not offer a paging/messenger service, except in emergencies.

Approved Hibbing Public Library Board December 9, 2009.
