Do not bring them through the security gates. Attempting to bypass detection by the security gates is prohibited.

If you cause the alarm to sound, your possessions and person are subject to search to determine the cause of the alarm. Return to the circulation desk and cooperate with library staff. Lack of cooperation will result in loss of library privileges.
