At the discretion of staff, patrons may be asked to leave their backpacks, groceries, or other bags behind the circulation desk until they are ready to leave the building. Staff are prohibited from keeping personal items for people who intend to leave the building and then come back.
The library assumes no responsibility for personal items brought into the library and requests that patrons refrain from bringing unnecessary items into the building - especially food or drink.
Patrons must allow staff to search their belongings if they have set off the security alarm when attempting to exit or if staff have any reason to suspect they may have library items that were not properly checked out.
THE VIOLATION OF ANY ONE OF THESE RULES MAY SUBJECT THE INDIVIDUAL(S) INVOLVED TO EXCLUSION FROM THE LIBRARY!
