Cell Phone Usage and Disturbing Others

When you enter the Library, please silence your Cell Phone
by selecting "Silent" or "Vibrate" on the ringer option,
or turn off your Cell Phone.

Be considerate to those around you and keep your conversations short and your voice lowered.

If you need to have an extended conversation, please use the Lobby or Conference Room, if available.

Please refrain from conversations in the Study Areas
and the Computer Lab.

If you wish to report inappropriate Cell Phone use
or loud conversations, please notify the Library Staff
at the Circulation Desk.


Computer Usage

Use of the Library computers is available
to all authorized Library patrons.

Youth ages 10 and above with a valid family member ID are authorized to use the computers without adult supervision.

Children under the age of 10 or those without
a proper ID card must be accompanied by an adult (18+)
while using the computer.

Use of the Computer Lab is at your own risk.

You must print and sign your name on the Computer Log

There is a 30 minute time limit on all computers

Abandoned print-outs will be shredded at the end of the day.
