- One person per study room unless occupants are fully vaccinated.*
- Eat only in the Cup & Chaucer or a Private Study Room unless you have been fully vaccinated.*
- Use of hand sanitizer and disinfecting surfaces is strongly encouraged.
- The library building is open to students, faculty and staff. A valid Hope ID is required for entry.
