Individuals or groups of individuals requesting signatures on petitions that are in the interest of the general public or for initiatives intended for the ballot in a general election are currently permitted by Mentor Public Library on the sidewalks and other outdoor public areas around the library as long as the activity does not interfere with patrons accessing the library entrances or library services. Petitioners are not permitted to:

  • Block patron access to the library
  • Harass patrons in an effort to obtain signatures
  • Intimate that the Mentor Public Library endorses or supports their cause
  • Gather signatures inside the library

The presence of petitioners on library property does not confer the library’s approval, endorsement, or support of the petitioner’s cause.
