Library Guidelines

Guidelines for gifts, donations, minors in the library and more.

Good to Know

It's true: an academic library is different than your school or public library, with different kinds of collections, resources, and rules. Our students work hard so we ask that everyone -- even fellow students -- to please respect our students. Help them out by following these guidelines:

  • Cell Phones

Allowed for texting.

  • Music

Allowed if inaudible to others.

  • Conversation

Allowed if you keep it down and don’t disturb others.*

  • Children

Allowed in the Library when accompanied by parent or guardian at all times, but children under 16 should not be in the Library Lab.

Good News for Parents!

The good news is that COM now has a kid friendly place on campus in the enrollment center with multiple computers where you can do what you need to do with a great area set up for kids!

Enrollment Center Hours

Monday & Tuesday 8:00am – 7:00pm
Wednesday – Friday 8:00am – 5:00pm

*At times there may be events and library classes; Library & Lab staff may need to converse with students to help them.
