Do You Hear What I Hear?
At the entrance to the library are security gates. Every book we own and equipment now too, are secured so that unless we desensitize items, the alarm (or beeping) will sound as you leave the building. Our items, books, computers, DVD’s, CD’s, etc., are precious to us. We want everyone to be able to use our resources, but responsibly, by checking things out at the circulation desk appropriately.
Should an item in your backpack trigger the alarm, kindly come back to the front desk and we will assist in figuring out what made the alarm sound. The Book Mark and many other stores place sensitized/magnetic strips into their items as well. It often isn’t compatible with our system so we will desensitize your textbooks so they won’t sound the alarm again.
Our final word is please don’t be alarmed by the alarm!
