Cell Phones
In order to provide an atmosphere conducive to study, cell phones should be turned off or switched to vibrate when inside the library. Patrons should use a low voice when placing or answering calls. The library staff reserves the right to ask patrons to move to a more acceptable place inside the library or to the lobby outside the library if other patrons are being disturbed.
