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:
Allowed for texting.
Allowed if inaudible to others.
Allowed if you keep it down and don’t disturb others.*
Allowed in the Library when accompanied by parent or guardian at all times, but children under 16 should not be in the Library Lab.
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!
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.
