Library Policies

Plough Library Behavior Guildeines

Plough Library seeks to maintain an atmosphere conducive to reading, studying, and other academic pursuits. Any behavior that impinges on the rights of another is unacceptable. The library is also responsible for maintaining the collection and materials in the library. To help us in our efforts we ask that library users follow the guidelines below:

Food & Drink Policy:
Because of COVID-19 precautions, we ask that no food be consumed in the library. Covered drinks are allowed, but you must keep your mask on when not drinking. Please use extra caution drinking around library materials and computers. All trash must be disposed of in the appropriate receptacles. Staff should be alerted to any spills.

Noise Policy:
Please see the recently updated Noise Policy.

  • Smoking or vaping inside the library
  • Drinking alcohol inside the library
