Library Board to Consider Restrictive New Policies that Impact Homeless People (& You)
by Robert Norse
On Monday December 3rd, the Library Joint Powers Authorities Board meets at the new Scotts Valley Library (251 Kings Village Rd.) to consider imposing new harsher policies regarding sleeping in the library, "smelling bad", service animals, & unattended property. The matter was raised at a November meeting, but postponed according to Sentinel writer J.M. Brown (See http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/localnews/ci_21936587/santa-cruz-library-board-delays-suspension-policy-changes). Libraries are a last refuge for homeless people and folks should demand expansion not contraction of access there.
