Cell Phone Policy

James J. Shea Sr. Memorial Library offers a wide range of services and materials to students, faculty, staff, and other community patrons. While in the library all patrons expect to find a place for quiet study, research, and concentration.

Cell phones are to be set to "silent" mode upon entering the library. Patrons should be considerate of other library patrons around them and refrain from cell phone use in study and computer areas. If a conversation is necessary patrons should move to a stairwell or leave the library. Cell phone use is strictly prohibited in the reading (flag) room or at any computer station. If cell phone use is necessary during computer use (patrons seeking tax or financial aid help), patrons should seek permission from a library staff member. Library patrons are encouraged to report inappropriate cell phone use to a library staff member.

Patrons who fail to adhere to this policy will be asked to leave the library. Repeat abusers risk loss of library privileges.
