Library Guidelines

Food and Drink

  • Food and drink are permitted in the library; we encourage patrons to use closable containers for beverages and meals.
  • Food delivery is not permitted.
  • Please dispose of all trash appropriately.

Cell Phones

  • When in the library, please have your cell phone ringer set to silent or vibrate.
  • If talking on your cell phone, please talk quietly and move to a private area or outdoors.


  • We request that you be considerate of others while in the library. Please keep your voice at a reasonable level. You do not have to whisper, but being too loud is a distraction to other patrons who are also here to study, do research, and complete assignments.
  • We ask you to be particularly considerate when going up or down the stairs as sound echoes loudly there.

Security Gate

  • The library exit has a security system. If it beeps while you are going out, please step back and you will be assisted by one of the Circulation Desk staff.
