Service Animals Policy

Service Animals Policy

Animals are prohibited in the Ikeda Library with the exception of trained service animals and service animals in training for patrons with disabilities. A service animal is defined as any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability. Pets or emotional support animals are not considered service animals. 
 
Patrons with service animals are solely responsible for control of their service animal. Service animals must remain on a leash or in a harness at all times unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls. Employees are not permitted to take control of service animals. 
 
Service animals are welcome to use any open outdoor area for relief as long as the patron picks up after the animal and leaves the area clean. 
 
If a service animal poses a threat to the safety of, or is causing a disturbance for other users or employees, their handlers may be asked to escort the animal off the premises. Users with service animals are solely liable for any damage or injury caused by their service animal.
