A: Libraries are public institutions that provide free access to information and resources to their patrons. Libraries are not typically obligated to provide services to businesses or individuals for profit.

If the person is argumentative or demanding, the library may refuse to provide the services requested. Libraries have the right to refuse to provide services to patrons who are disruptive or abusive.
