Emergency Policy

It is the policy of the Durham Public Library to provide service to the public, whenever possible.  Of equal concern is the safety of our patrons and staff.  Emergency situations and adverse conditions, such as a power failure, severe storm, no heat or water, may occur which make it impossible for the Library to operate.  The Library Director, or her/his designee, has the authority to determine whether and when the Library should close. (See appendix 4 a,b,c)
