facility. All others are charged a $5.00 daily research fee for use of
the Library materials.

When done with a research book at one of our many tables, we ask that you not
attempt to reshelve the book. Just place the book on one of the library
carts located around the Library. Also, please keep your eyes open and
watch for step stools, chairs or other items that may be placed on the floor
around the research areas.
