Please don't leave your personal belongings unattended in the Library

in particular laptops, cellphones, wallets and backpacks. Unattended belongings attract thieves, and while many believe the risk to be small, it is real and such a loss can be devastating. Even for short trips to the copier, printer, or toilets, take them with you or have a friend sitting next to you watch them while you're gone. The library is not responsible for the loss of personal belongings.
