Cell phone use is permitted in the core areas on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors BY THE ELEVATORS ONLY, NOT IN THE STAIRWELLS; by In-House/Pay-Phones; and in the Hub in the basement.
As always, we ask that cell phones be set to VIBRATE upon entering the building and that users be considerate of others, lower their voices, and keep conversations brief.
The Library strives to accommodate the needs of library patrons for service and comfort while maintaining a clean, safe, environment and preserving library collections, equipment and facilities. Library patrons should be considerate and keep in mind that food and drink can damage or destroy books, electronic equipment, and furnishings.
Library patrons may drink non-alcoholic beverages from securely covered containers except in the areas of computer workstations, copiers, scanners, other electronic equipment, and in areas marked "No Drinks Allowed." Unacceptable beverage containers include aluminum cans and containers without lids. No uncovered beverage containers are permitted on Floors 1-5 of Young Library.
Examples of appropriate beverage containers:
Library patrons are expected to clean up after themselves and should properly dispose of empty containers and wrappers. Spills should be reported immediately to the nearest service desk so they can be cleaned up quickly to avoid permanent damage.
Snacks (crackers, pretzels, chips, etc.) fruit, and items in small containers (dips, hummus, etc.) may be consumed except in areas marked "No Food Allowed." Meals, messy, crumbly, sticky and/or odorous foods or snacks (salads, hamburgers, pizza, soup, etc.) are not permitted on Floors 1-5 of Young Library, but may be consumed in the Hub (basement). Food deliveries to the Library will be turned away. These should be received outside Young Library.
In accordance with University of Kentucky regulations, alcohol and the use of tobacco products are not permitted in the Libraries.
Patrons in violation of this policy will be required to dispose of their food, drink or tobacco items and/or leave the Library. Violations will be handled by Library staff in accordance with the Library Patron Code of Conduct.
The Library reserves the right to determine that something is not allowed.
The William T. Young Library has personal lockers available for checkout to UK faculty, staff, and students. These lockers are located on floors 2 through 5.
There is a $5 replacement fee for a lost locker key.
