Concealed Weapon Carry

Since the Williams County Public Library is a community gathering place of learning for children and adults of all ages, the Ohio General Assembly has enacted the Concealed Carry Legislation to include an exemption for public libraries as a permissible location for concealed weapons.

The Board of Trustees of the Williams County Public Library, therefore, does not permit weapons of any kind, either concealed or in plain sight, on its property or in its buildings, unless the owner of the weapon is a law enforcement officer.

The library shall post signs notifying the public that the library is exempt from Ohio Concealed Carry law, as required by the Ohio Revised Code (ORC 2923.126 [B] [9]). The sign shall state: “Unless otherwise authorized by law, pursuant to the Ohio Revised Code, no person shall knowingly have under the person’s control, convey, or attempt to convey a deadly weapon or dangerous ordnance (military weapons) onto these premises.”

This is a sample of the sign to be posted:

Notice:  It is illegal to carry a firearm, deadly weapon, or dangerous ordnance anywhere on these premises.

“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 (military weapons) onto these premises.” (ORC 2923.126 [B] [9]
