Starting this fall, the following areas in the Library are Quiet Zones:
Conversations in the Quiet Zones need to be brief and– you guessed it– quiet. Cell phone use is prohibited. If you need to watch a video or listen to music on a computer, you must use headphones.
The Quiet Zones are places for you to study and work on class assignments in peace. If you need to do group work or have a conversation, you are welcome to do so on Floors 1-3, or in the conference rooms on floors 2M and 3M. Even in these “Non-Quiet Zones,” though, the noise should be kept to a respectful level.
If you’re ever bothered by noise in any area of the Library, Quiet or Non-Quiet, let a staff member know right away! We are happy to help.
As the end-of-semester break approaches, we would like to remind students to return any materials they have checked out of the Library by Tuesday, December 16. Unsure of what items are checked out in your name? Use the My Account feature of the FLO catalog to check your record. Directions on how to use this feature can be found here.
If the Library is closed when you come to return your items, you can use the drop box located to the right of the door. Just open the slot and slide the materials down the chute. Please do not leave materials outside the Library door – if something is damaged or stolen, you will be responsible for the cost of replacing it.
Thanks in advance for your prompt returns!
Monday, May 12 is the due date for all materials checked out by students that regularly have a 21-day checkout period. This includes books from the main and juvenile collections, juvenile magazines, curriculum materials, kits, CDs, cassettes, and juvenile videos. All other materials with shorter loan periods continue to be due as per their standard checkout times.
Are you graduating this semester? If you are, congratulations! Before you get your diploma, it is especially important for you to return your library books and take care of any fines or fees. If your account is not cleared by May 31, a hold will be placed on your academic transcripts. As alumni, you are always welcome to visit the library. Alumni have free borrowing privileges for one year after graduation. Following the year, there is a $20 annual alumni registration fee. Information about alumni borrowing privileges can be found on our website.
If you have questions about your library account, please contact the Circulation Desk at 617-879-2220 or email@example.com.

Best wishes as you complete your final papers, projects and exams.
