Can I bring my child to the library?


Yes, children and young adults are welcome in the Library! Children aged 12 and under must be under adult supervision. Parents are welcome to bring their kids when studying, checking out materials, or just visiting Starbucks. The Teacher Resource Center, located on the third floor of the north wing, offers a family-friendly study environment, complete with an outstanding collection suitable for family use.

What about noise?

Most of the library, apart from Quiet Study Areas, is collaborative space, meaning that conversation in indoor voices is fine.

Are there private spaces available?

If you want a more private space, you can book a study room, but plan ahead because they fill up fast! You can use the individual or group study rooms. There is also a lactation room on the third floor of the south wing.

Are strollers allowed?

Yes, strollers are fine. There are elevators in the north and south wings to get your family from floor to floor.

How about food?

Light snacks and water are OK in any area of the library. If you're planning more of a meal, please use the food friendly areas on the second floor.

Where can I find a changing table?

Changing tables are available in the first-floor restrooms and in the gender-neutral restroom on the third floor of the north wing. Ask at the Research Help desk if you need help finding them.

Does the library have books for young people?

The Teacher Resource Center (TRC) has lots of books for children and young adults. Enjoy them at the library, or check them out to read at home. Find the TRC on the third floor of the north wing.

Can I get help with checking out books?

You can request books, DVDs, and other items online. We'll get them from the shelves for you and send an email when they're ready. Then you can pick them up at the front desk instead of finding them yourself.

Also keep in mind that the Library's electronic resources are available anytime from wherever you are: find ebooks, search databases, or Chat with a Librarian 24/7.
