  • You must have filled out the Daily Symptom Self Screen, and present your green check to library staff when arriving for your reservation.

  • Wash or sanitize your hands when entering and leaving the library. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the library, and paper towel dispensers have been installed.
  • Our study rooms are available by appointment to single users only, and the rest of the library is closed. Please refrain from rearranging the furniture to work in groups, or moving to another study space within the library.
  • If you need to use a restroom, please use the ones outside the Library, on the other side of Public Safety.
