Dorot Jewish Division Bag and Coat Check Policy

For readers using rare materials, the Jewish Division requires patrons to check briefcases, bags, etc., including purses & laptop cases. The cloakroom is located just inside the Library's 42nd Street entrance.
The cloakroom attendant will supply a transparent bag for writing equipment (and valuables, if you choose). You should bring with you to the reading room only the contents of this bag and/or a laptop computer (minus the carrying case). Coats, jackets, and hats may be checked or worn, but they should not be stowed on the chairs, tables, or floor in the reading room. Thank you for your understanding.
