The mission of the Mark O.

In order to provide a safe, secure, and welcoming atmosphere within the library, the following are prohibited:

  • Use of tobacco (including chewing tobacco) 
  • Vaping
  • Pets (except for service animals)
  • Use of rollerblades, skateboards, scooters, or cycles; bicyclists must use the bike rack outside the library for parking their bikes
  • Loud cell phone conversations--please move to stairwells, the 24-hour study, the study rooms, or outside
  • Excessive noise or other disturbances
  • Unsupervised children under the age of fifteen
  • Posting materials anywhere in the library other than on the bulletin board in the 24-hour study (material must be date stamped before posting)
  • Removal of library materials from the library without authorization through established lending procedures
  • Intentional damage, destruction, or theft of library property or personal property
