The Windom City Library Board recently met and amended the patron conduct policy concerning animals in the library.
It was decided that only registered service animals will be allowed to enter the library. This means that “companion or support” animals that are not registered service dogs will not be allowed.
According to the state of Minnesota, a service animal is a dog — or, in rare cases, a miniature horse — that is specially trained to perform specific tasks for a person with a disability. A service animal might guide an individual with vision impairment, detect seizures, or keep individuals calm during a panic attack.
