Personal bags and your instrument cases may remain with you in the library, with the exception of large cases such as those for cellos, double basses, tubas, etc. These larger cases must be left at the circulation desk.

You may also choose to leave your bag or instrument downstairs at the circulation desk if you wish. Your belongings will be put in the closet and you’ll be given a claim check tag which you will use to retrieve it. The bags will be under the care of the guard or a library staff member at all times.

All bags and cases brought into the library will be inspected by either the guard or a library staff member before you leave the building.

**Coats and jackets may be worn in the library. However, during very inclement weather please leave wet outerwear on the coat hooks at the first-floor entrance, so that water and snow is not tracked through the building.
