A Snapshot of the Library for Fall 2020

Greetings everyone!!  There are a few things we want you to know about library operations this Fall.

  • The library reading room is being used as a classroom.  Students will enter and leave via the main Kaelber Hall entrance.  When there are no classes, the Reading Room will be closed and not available for access.
  • The library will function as two separate sections: the library lobby/seminar room and the stacks (since the Reading Room is a classroom this Fall).  Each section has a separate entrance, and you will not be able to travel from one section to the other inside the library. 

Protecting Against Covid

There are disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizers, and disposable gloves all throughout the library.

  • You must be wearing a mask to use the library.
  • When entering the library, please use hand sanitizer or gloves.
  • Wipe down any surfaces before and after use.
  • Many returned library items  that circulate (books, AV equipment, etc.) will be quarantined 3-4 days before they are available to circulate again.
