Library's Cleaning & Sanitizing Practices

In addition to the nightly janitorial cleaning, and frequent special cleaning by Facilities personnel during the day, the Library Staff works throughout the day to maintain a clean and very sanitized Library environment:

 

  • Library Staff wear masks and practice social distancing. Note ‘social distancing’ spots on the Floor.
  • The Library has seven (7) of the Deb Instant Foam Hand Sanitizer Units throughout the Library, including within the study rooms, the Copy Room, and throughout all the common spaces available for its users. There is also a Hand Sanitizer Unit directly outside the Library entrance for those entering and leaving the Library.
  • The Library makes every effort to ensure that all student spaces are wiped down throughout the day and especially after any student, faculty, staff member has used any space for study, research, printing, etc. This includes door handles, tables, chairs, copy machines, the front counter and all points of direct or face-to-face contact.
  • All possible points of contact are wiped down multiple times daily throughout the Library. This is a process that we have done on a daily basis, long before Covid-19.
  • The Library has, and will, continuously worked to control, reduce and/or eliminate points of exposure to all types of germs and viruses that might be brought into its workspace.
  • The Library is regularly stocked with disinfectant, paper towels, Kleenex, Cavicide wipes, and various other cleaning supplies for constant cleaning, sanitizing, etc.

 

The Library maintains a healthy and safe work environment and will continue to sanitize and disinfect its workspace to eliminate and reduce exposure.
