Himmelfarb Library Policies for Use of Charging Lockers

About the charging lockers

Himmelfarb Library provides 10 charging lockers for re-charging electronic devices. Lockers are located next to the New Books Shelf on the first floor.

Lockers may only be used to store electronic devices while they are charging. Other items are subject to removal by library staff members. (We check lockers on a periodic basis.)

Lockers are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Lockers are only for use by affiliates of the SMHS, GWSPH, and SON.

Users must provide their own cables; Himmelfarb does not offer loaner cables.

Instructions for locking and unlocking are posted at the charging station.

To use a locker

The use period for lockers is 4 hours. Users who do not collect their devices within that time frame face possible removal of their devices by staff. Items not claimed within a reasonable time will be turned over to GWPD.

Users are responsible for making sure their devices are securely locked. Himmelfarb Library assumes no liability for lost/stolen/damaged items.

Forgotten code

If a user forgets his/her code, (s)he will need to demonstrate proof of ownership of the electronic device to the Circulation Desk manager on duty.


Please bring any issues or questions concerning the charging lockers to the attention of a Circulation Desk manager
