The Archbishop Alter Library is committed to providing an environment conducive to research and study. In order to maintain a quiet learning environment, the Library asks all patrons to turn their cell phone ringer OFF when entering the Library and be considerate of those studying around them by not answering calls in quiet study areas.
Patrons making or receiving cell phone calls are welcome to use the WPS Starbucks Cafe or the hallway outside the Library's main entrance.
In addition to the Reading Room, quiet study spaces are available on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the library.
Although the Library is open to the community, our collections and facilities are intended primarily for the faculty, staff and students of the Mount St. Joseph University. We strive to provide an environment that is pleasant and conducive to study and research.
For their safety, we ask that children under 15 be supervised at all times by a parent or other responsible adult. Campus Police will be notified of unattended children.
Children under 15 who are accompanied by an adult are permitted in the Library providing that their behavior is appropriate for an academic library.
Parents (or other responsible adult) will be held responsible for their children’s behavior. Loud or disruptive children and their responsible adult may be asked to leave.
Children under 15 are not permitted to use the computer workstations in the Library.
Parents will be held responsible for any damage caused to library property by their children.
The Library Staff cannot be responsible for children who are left unattended in the library.
