Should we focus on the pajama pants, or be happy they are using the library instead of going elsewhere?

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. If 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
