The Mary Kintz Bevevino Library is designed to serve the Misericordia University community, primarily students, faculty and staff. Children should be accompanied at all times by a parent or an adult for their own safety. Parents are responsible for children's use of the library, including, but not limited to, the children's literature collection and the Internet.
The Library understands the need for using devices such as cell phones and pagers.
We ask that such devices are set to the “silent mode” while in the library. Further, when using these devices, patrons should go to the uncarpeted areas of the building (i.e. the breezeway, stairwells or bathrooms).
We appreciate your cooperation in respecting the quiet that some patrons need to work and study.
As a library courtesy, patrons without a MU ID number are allowed to print. There is a $.10 per side charge. Color copies may be printed in the multimedia room at a charge of $.25 per side. The library reserves the right to limit the printing of color intensive images. Printing of multiple handouts or flyers on the color printer is discouraged due to the amount of toner needed.
Students from Kings College, Luzerne County Community College, Marywood University, Penn State University (Wilkes-Barre Campus only), The University of Scranton and Wilkes University may apply for borrowing privileges. After presenting a valid student identification card and completing a borrower's application, a library card will be issued.
The library adheres to U. S. Copyright laws.
Patrons must present a valid college identification card or a library card to check out materials; otherwise a fee may be charged. Please do not loan your identification card or library card to another patron or borrow materials for another person.
The person to whom the material is checked out is responsible for any fees associated with overdue, lost or damaged materials.
A patron is guilty of library theft if he willingly conceals on his person or among his belongings any library material, including periodicals, and willfully or without authority removes the material from the library with the intention of converting it for his own use. A copy of the sections of Pennsylvania law dealing with library theft and retention of library property after notice to return is publically displayed on the first floor of the library. (Secton 3929.1 Pennsylvania Crimes Code.) As required by law, Section 3929.1 Pennsylvania Crimes Code is posted in the library.
