I hope this is the proper forum. Everyday that I am on the second floor of the Cabell Library, there is someone where smokes ALL through the day at various times. I have physiological responses to cigarette smoke. My eyes itch, then sting and burn and eventually it feels as though someone is sticking them with needles. I have trouble breathing, headaches, and disorientation. I would greatly appreciate it if the smoking inside of the building would stop. Thank you very much and have a nice day.

Thank you for bringing to our attention that someone is smoking on the 2nd floor. Smoking is, of course, banned by our Use of Library Facilities policy. We will ask the security officer on duty to pay attention to this on his/her rounds. If you witness someone smoking, please alert the security officer on duty or inform library staff at the circulation desk.
