Code of Conduct

Our pledge to you

We want to provide our patrons the best library experience possible. In doing so, we need your support in upholding our community library rules. Ask our Librarians for a full list of our policies or download our Library Policies (PDF).  

A few rules that people often ask about: 

Food and Drink

We have a coffee and sandwich shop right in our library. Here are a few pointers when eating and sipping one of our cafe's delicious organic coffee blends:

  • Only food and drink purchased at our Pirates Republic Coffee Shop is permitted.
  • Drinks are allowed in all areas of our library.
  • Be courteous and clean up your area after use.  

Parental Supervision

Children are welcome in the library. Installation policies on child supervision apply. 

Per the USAG Okinawa Child and Youth Supervision Matrix, Torii Library follows these guidelines. Parents are responsible for the welfare and safety of children and adolescents at all times.
