The Castleton Public Library Closing Policy is as follows:
- In the event that conditions arise requiring a premature closing of the library due to inclement weather, the Library Director, in consultation with the Library Board President, may close the library building to the public.
- Situations which may result in closing the library may include, but are not limited to, inclement weather, a power outage, a failure of the building heating system, flooding and unsafe or unhealthy conditions.
- All library loan periods will be extended when this occurs.
Once a decision has been made to close the library, the Library Director will notify the necessary media outlet(s) to broadcast the closing to the general public and staff. Closing information and this policy will be posted on the library website.
