Library Use Policies

We ask that everyone in the Libraries follow our policies during their visits to ensure a pleasant and productive experience for all.


Certified service animals are permitted in the Libraries.


Bicycles should be locked to a bicycle rack, not handrails or academic buildings in compliance with Pacific University's bicycle policies.


Patrons are expected to behave in a respectful and courteous manner. Loud noises and chatty groups are discouraged.

Food & Beverages

  • Snacks and beverages are allowed in the Libraries.
  • Please be considerate of others. Noisy, greasy or aromatic food (pizza, nachos, potato chips, etc.) is prohibited as it can distract others and damage the Libraries' resources.
  • Food cannot be delivered to the Libraries.
  • Alcohol is strictly prohibited in compliance with Pacific University's alcohol policy.

Lost & Found

Items left behind in the Library will be collected in a Lost and Found box at the Circulation Desk. Each Friday, these items are taken to the Pacific Information Center (PIC) in the University Center and can be retrieved there.


These Forest Grove spaces have additional policies.
