EPL Welcomes New Safety Manager

Euclid Public Library is working to foster a Welcoming Environment for All.

For almost 85 years, Euclid Public Library has served as a beacon of access and information in the City of Euclid. We strive to foster a welcoming environment while encouraging patrons to use our facility and resources for learning and enrichment. 

Over the years, we have implemented policies to ensure our patrons and staff are safe and behave in a manner that does not disrupt others.

To continue to preserve our efforts, this year, the Euclid Public Library Board of Trustees approved the hire of a new Safety Manager position at the Library. Long-time Euclid resident, Euclid City Schools Security Officer, and Euclid Auxiliary Police Officer Ben Fagan was appointed to the Safety Manager position on October 15, 2019.

As Safety Manager, Mr. Fagan will support the Library’s mission by helping staff and patrons maintain a safe and welcoming environment. Mr. Fagan will communicate regularly with police, school staff, and other community organizations regarding safety needs at the Library, and oversee the enforcement of the Adult Chaperone policy. Mr. Fagan will also serve as Euclid Public Library’s Safety Liaison with the Euclid Police Department and other community organizations. 

The Library will continue to enforce the Adult Chaperone policy Monday through Friday, between 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM during the school year. Students under the age of 18 must pre-register for a library program to access the building or be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or caregiver over the age of 21.

We appreciate your cooperation and support as we continue to strive to achieve our goal of providing a welcoming space for all.
