Pace Library: Know Before You Go

News Story

Pace Library staff are ready to assist you this semester, both in-person and remote. Be sure to review their handy guide on how to find exactly what you need, and where to get help—including texting a librarian.

If you’re considering a visit to the Pace Library, there are a few things you should know before your arrival! While staff are ready and eager to assist you in finding what you need, it’s important to adhere to a few new changes that have been implemented during the Spring 2021 semester:

1. Keep on your face coverings.

Please keep your face covering on at all times while visiting the Library. This is for your safety as well as the safety of the Library staff! Thank you for doing your part to help keep Pace safe this semester.

2. Practice social distancing.

As always, we ask that you follow all social distancing directives in the Library and refrain from moving furniture. Your safety and wellbeing are important to us.

3. Check the catalog.

Need to grab a book or two? Check the “Books and Media” tab on the Pace Library website to review the availability of any items you might need. That way, you can ensure whether it will be there when you drop by.

4. Request your books ahead of time.

Once you find a book you need, you can make a request and Pace Library staff will notify you when it’s ready to be picked up. Requesting your books early ensures you can make the most of your visit—and save time.

5. Ask a librarian.

Pace Librarians are here to help! If you’re unsure what you might need and you’re planning to visit the Pace Library, take a moment to ask. They’re available to chat via text, phone, and even Zoom. All you need to do is click “Ask a Librarian” on the Pace Library website.
