All library events for fall semester have been cancelled or moved to virtual formats. This includes lectures, music, films, workshops, and conferences.
The library building care staff have adjusted their routine to include regular cleaning of door handles and frequently-touched surfaces.
Hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes are available at numerous locations throughout the building.
We have removed some furniture to encourage individual study and are asking patrons not to study in large groups. Guides to social distancing have been posted in all of the study areas and we are asking patrons to leave chairs where they found them.
We encourage patrons to use online resources first. If a visit to the library building is necessary, we ask everyone to wear a face covering, practice social distancing, avoid touching staff, respect the plexiglass panels during interactions with staff, and use hand sanitizer and/or wash hands frequently.
