  • 32. Reading Zone The reading zone is for everybody, whether you’re an enrolled student or a homesick alumni. It is meant to be shared. No particular group can claim the “Zone” as their exclusive territory. You can deposit/donate your old books and other reading materials on the designated “shelves”. Don’t worry:you don’t need any computer science books here! Once you donate/deposit your materials, you relinquish personal ownership over it. That is, you cannot blame anyone in case it gets lost or removed from the Zone. The Zone encourages sharing and brainstorming of any idea under the sun. Giving to the Zone means you’re willing to share no matter what the cost. If you wish to take a book out, make sure you replace it with another book/mag within the day. Don’t forget the fact that you’re still in UP, more so inside the library. Same rules against noise and heckling apply here. You have the freedom to build/contribute to the collection.You can also weed out some books/mags in case you don’t need them. An exclusive Reading Zone Stamp Pad is available for use. Make sure to stamp each book donated into the zone, then indicate the name and email of the donor. Feel free to relax and study. Of course, no littering, fighting nor PDA’s. No vandalism. There is no freedom wall here. This is your Reading Area. Please love it and take care of it.
