Soliciting in Library Buildings
(revised by EVPL Board of Trustees 10/91)
It is the established policy of the Board of Trustees of the Evansville-Vanderburgh Public Library that solicitors and peddlers will not be permitted to solicit library customers or staff members on duty. Furthermore, staff members should invite salesmen to leave the building by informing them that Library staff are not permitted to discuss business matters on Library time. If a salesman persists, the department head or individual in charge should be called to escort the solicitor out of the building.
Religious proselytizing is also forbidden.
Solicitations by Staff Members
Any staff member who desires to sell home grown products, home crafted products, or items for sale by charitable organizations may not openly sell these items in library buildings. They may, however, post a notice or sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the staff room, indicating what they are selling, the price, etc. These items must be delivered to the buyers during break time, lunchtime, or after working hours.
