Cell phone and Media Use
CELL PHONE AND MEDIA USE
The library understands that cell phones and media use are important in a library, however, it must also balance the need for academic quiet versus the need for personal conversation or media use. It is requested that patrons limit their cell phone use as much as possible to less public areas of the library.
Headphones should always be used with PCs when listening or using multimedia (watching movies, listening to music, playing games). The headphones audio should be set as low as possible to accommodate hearing, but not be invasive to other people's listening spaces.
The librarians will monitor for noise level issues and may request that sound be turned down or media / phones be turned off, if the noise is too loud. Because most people do not realize how loud they are when they are on the phone, librarians or library staff may request that patrons leave public areas if phone conversations run longer than a minute.
