When you first enter the library, you will see the circulation desk. This is where you check books in and out, get videos and materials on reserve.

Since this is a work area, you can talk quietly.

Since films cannot be taken out of the library, they must be viewed on a machine inside the library. DVDs can be watched on a computer with the correct region code, and VHS tapes can be watched in this room on the video screen. Always use headphones when watching a film.

A Few Tips

DO NOT RESHELVE THE BOOKS! Instead, leave them on a table or place them on one of the shelves in each room marked for shelving

There are refreshment machines where you can buy snacks and drinks. While you can drink non-alcoholic beverages anywhere in the library, eat next to the machines or outside.

Finally for courtesy’s sake, take extended calls on cell phones outside in the garden.
