Question: I would like to start a civil talk about the dress code. T-shirts are only acceptable that contain logos, endorsing programming or branding used by the Virginia Beach Public Library or the City of Virginia Beach, unless supervisor approval is obtained. As it is stated here, no logos may be on T-shirts but what about other shirts? And what is a logo? I was told today I could not wear my knit shirt because it has a two inch stitched cartoon on it. Does that mean I can not wear my button down shirts with any picture that can be named (cartoons)? And if so, why?
Answer by David Palmer, Public Services Manager: Logos that are on polo shirts, including cartoon characters, are generally acceptable unless the cartoon character is doing something that might be deemed objectionable.
