Many bookstores and public libraries use security systems that are similar to the one used at Gumberg Library. Because of this, books that do not belong to Gumberg Library may occasionally cause the alarm to sound.  If the alarm goes off as you are leaving, please return to the Circulation Desk so staff can assist you.
