• To check out library materials: Show or place your ID card on the counter at the Circulation desk with the barcode face-up so staff may easily scan it. Then, place your items on the counter.
    • To return library materials: Please return all books that are due to the book drop by the Library entrance. Place all audiovisual items (DVDs or CDs) in the new return bin at the Circulation Desk.
    • We will continue in-person staffing of the Circulation and Info Desk at this time, but we strongly encourage you to use our virtual Ask a Librarian services for help.
    • At the Circulation Desk, please stand behind the new line on the floor. The line will help us all maintain a safe distance during reference interactions.
    • Wash your hands before and after using public computers and scanners. Please follow the CDC’s guidelines for hand washing.
    • Sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer are available at the entrance and near the Circulation Desk, upon request.
    • Library Staff and Facilities will wipe down surfaces, computers, mice, printer, and scanners after users utilize it. Patrons can wipe it down as well. The wipes are located by the entrance.  
    • The computer area is limited to 4 people at a time. Please keep a social distance of 3 – 6 feet between yourself and others. The Library is taking measures to spread out and relocate some computers to reduce crowding. 
    • Please refrain from making trips to the Library merely to print. Instead, print documents at home or consider alternatives such as reading articles online or submitting assignments digitally.

Finally, as classes move online, the Library reminds you that there are many ways to get help virtually:
