Emergency Exits
Please note that the Main Level and the Lower Level have at-grade exits but the Upper Level and Mezzanines are accessed only by the elevators, which may not be used in case of fire. If you are a wheelchair user and you can’t exit the building during a fire alarm, wait inside one of the stairwells for rescue personnel. If possible, note the staircase number (1-4) and ask someone exiting the building to notify emergency responders of your location, or call 911 from a cell phone to alert rescuers of your location. The stairwells are designed as “safe zones” during a fire with doors that shut automatically and an independent air circulation system.

Elevator #2 in the NE corner of the building is designed to operate on the emergency generator during a power failure.


Retrieving Materials
Some users may not be able to reach all of the library shelves and some people may have trouble reading the call numbers on the spines of the books. Users may request assistance with book retrieval by contacting Circulation Services in person, by phone x5494, or email.
