The Library "dress code" consists of one rule and one recommendation:
  • The rule is, for your own safety, shoes should be worn at all times.
  • The recommendation is that, as a public space on the campus of a Christian university, the Library expects its patrons to dress in a way that does not dishonor Christ.


  • Loud noises and conversations are not permitted in the Library.
  • Music must be listened to with headphones at a volume that is not audible to those sitting nearby.
  • Patrons guilty of being excessively noisy will be asked to leave.


  • Be respectful of others using the Library and take all cell phone calls to the hallway outside the Library.
  • The phones in the Library are for library staff use only.
  • Do not have someone use the Library phone to reach you unless it is an emergency.

Food & Drink

  • Food is not permitted in the Library.
  • Drinks are allowed in covered containers (e.g., bottles with screw-on tops, coffee cups with lids).
  • Anyone violating this rule will be asked to leave and the food and/or non-covered drink may be confiscated.


  • Children in the Library must always be accompanied by an adult. 
  • Unattended children will be asked to leave.


  • Do NOT take items out of the Library without checking them out at the Library Service Desk.
  • The Library has installed a security system in order to remind borrowers to check out materials properly at the Library Service Desk before leaving the Library
  •  The Library is not responsible for any personal items (such as notebook computers, purses, and backpacks) left unattended.


  • During emergencies, library staff will provide direction for patrons as appropriate to the situation.
  • Please be attentive and cooperative during the situation in order to insure safety for all.

Study Carrels

  • Study carrels are available to Seminary and Graduate students on a "first come, first served" basis.
  • Inquiries about the availability of study carrels should be made to the Library Technical Assistant for Acquisitions & Operations at (217) 732-3168 ext. 2231.
