  • Bengal ID Card and mask are always required.
  • Social distancing: keep 6 feet apart and please do not move furniture.
  • Enjoy food or drink outside of the building.
  • Our stacks are closed, but you can request books online and we'll pull them for you using our Library Book Pick-up Service.
  • A limited number of course reserve books will be available in the Reading Room by reservation starting 9/8/20. Reserve a time here.
  • Building is open only to current Buffalo State College students, faculty, and staff.
