The Ritter Public Library prohibits weapons on its premises. Individuals with concealed weapon permits do not have permission, by virtue of those permits, to bring concealed weapon/firearms onto Library property. Any individual who is found to possess firearms or deadly weapons or dangerous ordnance will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. In addition, anyone found to have violated this policy shall no longer have library privileges.

The Library will post a notice, as required by the Ohio Revised Code, in a prominent location which informs the users and invitees of the Library that the Library prohibits deadly weapons or dangerous ordnance. That notice shall state:

NOTICE: Unless otherwise authorized by law, pursuant to the Ohio Revised Code, no person shall knowingly possess, have under the person’s control, convey, or attempt to convey a deadly weapon or dangerous ordnance onto these premises.
