A security camera is installed in the lower level of Paris Carnegie Public Library to help staff monitor that area and to discourage violations of library policy.

Access to live feeds of images is available to staff in the office and at the service desk in order to monitor current activity. Video is not recorded or saved.

The camera will not be continuously monitored and does not cover all areas of the building. The public and staff should take appropriate precautions for their safety and the security of their personal property. Neither Paris Carnegie Public Library nor the City of Paris is responsible for loss of property or personal injury.

The Library disclaims any liability for use of video in accordance with the terms of this policy, given that the library is a public facility and the security camera is limited to an area where patrons and/or staff have no reasonable expectation of privacy.

This policy is posted on the library website. Signs stating that a camera is in use will be posted at both public entrances. The Board of Trustees of Paris Carnegie Public Library will review this policy periodically and reserves the right to amend it at any time.
