  • No group gatherings of any size to guarantee social distancing.
  • You must check in at the circulation desk to be seated.

  • Furniture cannot be moved in order to guarantee social distancing. 
  • Leave any library materials you have used, but do not plan to check out, at your seat so they can be properly quarantined.
  • Follow flow of movement arrows to insure social distancing. 
  • Remain six feet apart, illustrated by markers on the floor, when waiting at public service points or the elevator. 
  • If you need to borrow library materials please request the items before coming to the building. If you are unsure of how to request items in our collection you can find step-by-step guide here
