Security cameras are used where needed to provide peace of mind to library users and staff.
The Dimmit County Public Library enriches our community by providing unlimited opportunities for information, education, inspiration and imagination. We also strive to continue to connect our community to the power of knowledge. To complete this mission, the Library must offer a welcoming, open atmosphere and provide a quiet, comfortable and safe environment where people can use library facilities and collections for intended purposes to the maximum extent possible.
Security cameras are used where needed to provide peace of mind to library users and staff by discouraging violations of the Library’s rules and guidelines of conduct, to assist library staff in preventing the occurrence of any violations, and when necessary, to provide law enforcement assistance in prosecuting criminal activity. The purpose of this policy is to establish guidelines for the placement and use of video security cameras, as well as the access and retrieval of recorded video images at the Dimmit County Public Library.
A copy of this policy may be shared with members of the public upon request. The policy is also posted on the Dimmit County Public Library’s official website.
