Good housekeeping is critical to preventing trips, slips, and falls. Adequate lighting, marked exits and egress are mandatory.

Children’s activities are becoming an important service provided by libraries. If parents do not stay with their children, there must be adequate supervision. Background checks must be conducted on individuals regularly interacting with children.

Security at the facility, as well as in the building, corridors, and any owned parking area, needs to be carefully checked and reviewed.
