The following policies have been established out of consideration for those using the library and for the protection of the equipment and collections.
Ringers should be off. Patrons should step outside the library to have phone conversations.
Beverages in spill-proof containers are allowed in the library. These containers include travel mugs with lids, and sports and other bottles with spill-proof tops. Open soda cans or paper cups with plastic lids are not acceptable.
