We know it's that time of the semester. You're living almost 24/7 in the library trying to finish another paper or reading those last chapters. Do you know who else is here at the library? Yep, thieves. They're waiting for you to leave your backpacks, cell phones, laptops, and wallets alone for just that moment you go to get a drink of water or go to the restroom. That's all the longer they need to take your personal items. Be smart. Don't leave your personal items unattended. In fact if library staff see items unattended, we will leave a small reminder that your items could have been the target for thieves. Has it happened this semester already? YES! Is it going to happen again? Sure if you leave your stuff alone. Don't become their next target!
