“It’s very broad and applies to everyone," Library Director Misty Jones said. "If I was to enforce I'm going to suspend a toddler who falls asleep or I’m going to going to suspend an 80-year-old man who nods off reading the newspaper.”
Jones says now, staff will wake a person up but they won't be kicked out if they're not disrupting others.
"It was punitive and unfair and targeting a specific population," Jones said.
Jones says one reason the policy changed was after a librarian found a teenager sleeping. Rather than kick her out, she had a conversation with the teenager.
