SEC. 7-273.  RULES OF CONDUCT ENFORCEMENT.
   (A)   General provisions. A library customer is subject to exclusion from the library or may otherwise have his or her library privileges restricted or suspended if he or she (or a person under his or her control or direction) violates any of the rules of conduct specified in section 7-272 within 90 days after he or she was given a verbal warning for a violation of the rules of conduct and a subsequent written warning notice of a violation of the rules of conduct. Serious violations of the rules of conduct, as determined by the library manager, may result in the issuance of a written warning notice without a verbal warning.
   (B)   Persons authorized to issue warning or exclusion notices. The library manager shall designate those library staff authorized to issue warning and exclusion notices.
   (C)   Issuance of warning or exclusion notices -
      (1)   Warning notice - After the issuance of a verbal warning to a library customer for a violation of the rules of conduct or immediately upon the occurrence of a serious rule of conduct violation, library staff designated by the library manager may issue a written warning notice for a rule of conduct violation. The warning notice shall specify that the recipient must leave the library for the remainder of the day, and that in the event a second violation of the rules of conduct occurs within 90 days of the date of issuance of the warning notice, that person shall be subject to exclusion from the library facility for a period of time not to exceed two years, or the loss of some or all of his or her library privileges as the library manager may determine to be appropriate. The warning notice shall also contain information concerning the right to appeal. The person to whom the warning notice is issued shall sign a written acknowledgment of its receipt. If the recipient refuses to sign, the person issuing the warning notice shall make a written record of the refusal.
      (2)   Exclusion notice - If a library customer has received a warning notice as set forth in division (C)(1) above and again violates a rule of conduct within 90 days of the date of issuance of the warning notice, library staff designated by the library manager may issue a written exclusion notice excluding the person from the library facility or setting forth the loss of some or all of his or her library privileges as the library manager may determine to be appropriate. If the person is excluded from the library facility, the exclusion shall be for a period of no less than one month and no more than two years. The exclusion notice shall specify the person that is to be excluded from the library facility, the period of the exclusion, the time the exclusion is to commence, and library privileges being lost and the specified period of loss, and information concerning the right to appeal the exclusion notice. The person to whom the exclusion notice is issued shall sign a written acknowledgment of its receipt and allow his or her photograph to be taken. If the recipient refuses to sign or take a photograph, the person issuing the exclusion notice shall make a written record of the refusal.
