The Van Wagenen Library faculty and staff are aware of the need to carry cell phones. However, ringing cell phones and personal phone conversations are distracting, disturbing, and disruptive. This Library’s policy requires that:
- Cell phone users respect those who are at work studying and researching.
- Library patrons should make all cell phone calls from the Lobby if reasonable quiet cannot be maintained. Library staff reserves the right to ask patrons to move immediately to the Lobby to take a call.
- Library patrons should use the vibrate function (turn off ringer) as the alert for incoming calls. Patrons who do not have a vibrate function should turn the audible signal to its lowest volume.
