Part of the mission of the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library is to provide access to information and to support lifelong learning. This is accomplished through proper development of collection resources and through sponsorship of appropriate educational programs.

However, it also is essential that the library be perceived in the community as neutral in all issues, including but not limited to those dealing with politics and religion.

Therefore, it is the policy of this library that petitions may not be placed in the building, regardless of purpose. Also, patrons may not be approached within the building and asked to sign petitions, regardless of purpose.
