The Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library is now a tobacco free campus. The policy change became effective after action taken by the Board of Trustees during its July 18 meeting. The change takes effect immediately. The library personnel will act in educational mode with the public for some time to inform people of the changes in the Customer Conduct Policy. Signage will also communicate the change, which previously permitted smoking 20-feet from the entrance. Smoking in personal vehicles and the perimeter sidewalks are exempt from the ban. Please refer to the map to identify areas where tobacco use is not permitted.
