I’m amazed that this is such a problem as to necessitate a laminated sign. I mean, I wasn’t planning on bringing any balloons inside…But it’s sort of a downer to know I couldn’t if I suddenly got the urge.

t’s probably kids from the middle & high schools who created the need for the sign. I grew up about 10 minutes away and there was a tradition in my town of people bringing mylar balloons for you on your birthday for you to tie to your backpack. I could see some shenanigans ensuing with them at a library after school. Oh, and I’m also a librarian, so I think I am trained to forsee said shenanigans.
