The Payson Library is a Town of Payson public facility. It is the responsibility of the staff to provide and safeguard the library collection so that the items within are available for the use of all of our citizens. In that light, all of the library policies have been developed to provide the best service possible to our community and to those passing through. The knowledgable staff will assist patrons in locating materials, answering questions, and through providing activities, as time allows. Adherence to the library policies, will benefit all, and is greatly appreciated by the staff who are required to enforce them.
