Library policies are designed to create a safe and quiet environment for all to enjoy. Library users are responsible for informing themselves of these policies, which apply to all patrons, including faculty, staff and members of the community. Thank you for your cooperation.
- Quiet Study
A quiet atmosphere is expected in all areas of the building. Any noise or activity that disturbs the concentration of other users (including noise from conversations, cell phones, pagers, musical devices, etc.) is considered inappropriate. Areas where there are service desks will naturally be noisier than other areas.
- Cayot Room
Past and present students have requested a “Quiet Zone” in which to study and use the computers. While in the Cayot Room, please be respectful of the no talking policy.
- Book Sale
We hold an ongoing used book sale of discarded and donated books. Items for sale are located above the shelves along the window opposite the entrance. Most items are 25 cents.
- Lost and Found
Personal items should not be left unattended. There is a lost and found box located at the front desk. We are not responsible for items left behind or unattended.
- Food and Drinks
Food is not allowed in the library. Drinks are permitted if they are covered.
- Cell Phones/Pagers
Cell phones and pagers are to be turned off or put on silent mode in the library. Cell phone conversations are not permitted inside the library.
- Children in the Library
Guests under the age of 18 are asked to visit the library only with an accompanying parent or guardian. Due to space and liability concerns, elementary and secondary school students without the presence of a parent or college tutor are not valid library users.
- Supply Table
For your convenience there are basic supplies (paper cutter, three-hole punch, standard and heavy duty staplers, pencils, tape, scissors, etc.) located near the copiers/printers for patron use. Please do not remove supplies from the library so that all may be able to use them.
- Unacceptable Behavior
Any behavior that hinders the operation of the library or library users’ ability to study or use library resources will not be tolerated. Library staff may ask users to leave if they create a disturbance, pose a safety threat or refuse to abide by library policies. Failure or refusal to comply with the library staff’s directives will be reported to Campus Security.
