Registration and Security

All Library & Archives patrons are required to present a state or federal ID card (such as a driver's license) prior to entering the Reading Room. Patron library cards provide access to the second floor Reading Room.

Briefcases, bags, totes, purses, and notebooks are subject to examination by a staff member when entering or leaving the Reading Room.

Lockers are available for patrons to store belongings during their visit. The Library & Archives is not responsible for any personal items left unattended. Visitors using original manuscripts will be required to leave their belongings in a locker. 

Backpacks must be stored in a locker. If a backpack is too large to fit in a locker, then it must either be locked in the patron's vehicle or stored in the main lobby while using Library & Archives materials.
