Using a cell phone in a Huntington Beach, CA library could cost you a pretty penny! Read about it in this article from a Los Angeles area station entitled, Use a Cell Phone in a Library, Pay $1,000
From the article:
City leaders adopted an ordinance, which takes effect Sept. 15, that bans all cell phone use in libraries, including talking, text messaging and ringing tones of any kind.
First-time violators will be warned, then fined $250 if they don’t comply. A second offense gets a $500 fine and a third offense gets a $1,000 fine.
Thanks to UW Law Library colleague, Cindy May for passing this one on.
