Library Board of Control members have until Jan. 1 to put a policy in place pertaining to sex offenders.
During the September meeting, Library Director Vivian McCain told board members that the library is required to write a policy pertaining to sex offenders with the passage of a new law that prohibits those convicted of a sex offense against a victim under 13 from entering public libraries, with certain exceptions.
The library policy might simply restrict offenders from using the library at certain times or from certain sections of it, she said.
