[Michlib-l] pajamas in the library

Do you also tell young men they can't wear their jeans around their knees? What about girls in yoga pants/leggings? Then there's the grandma in a miniskirt.... 

Point is, there's no accounting for taste, but a public building is not a fine dining establishment. I f these people are not embarrassed to go out in public in their pajamas, it may be a sign of the downfall of society, but does it really effect staff's ability to give good public service?

I’ve seen a lot worse come into our library then pjs.  As long as they’re wearing a shirt and have shoes on we put up with it.

Hello all, 
How do you address the issue of adults wearing their pjs to the library? Not for a special program, they just are out and about in their pjs. I searched online this weekend for policies dealing with this, but found nothing. 
If you have a policy that addresses this issue, I would appreciate hearing from you. 

Thank you! 
Phyllis
