Public Address Annoucement Policy

Public Address Annoucement Policy

Purpose:  The Atkins Library Public Address system is intended primarily for giving instructions to library patrons and staff regarding building or weather emergencies and daily closing of the Atkins building.

The Atkins Library Public Address System may be used by authorized Library Staff for:

  • Building emergencies.
  • Weather emergencies.
  • Building closing announcements.
  • Important Library business, including announcements for overdue in-house reserves.  Library business announcements are to be made at the discretion of Library Public Service Desk Supervisors.  Such announcements should be very brief and kept to a minimum.

Note:  Library patron requests for Public Address announcements due to personal emergencies must be cleared through UNCC Campus Police before authorized Library Staff can fulfill requests.  Authorized Library Staff include Library Security Officers and Public Service Desk Supervisors.
