Did you know that Birmingham Libraries have their very own set of byelaws? Well they do! This is a set of rules and regulations which outline how customers should behave when using a library. They were made by Birmingham City Council under Section 19 of the Public Libraries and Museums Act 1964.
A library is a complex public building which hosts lots of different activities and must meet the expectations of its many customers. These guidelines describe how visitors should behave toward each other, library staff, the building and its stock. By following these byelaws customers will experience a safe, secure and harmonious environment.
The important thing is that we want you to enjoy your visit to a Birmingham library and make the most of all of the rich and varied services on offer.
