  • Lock your car anytime you leave the car.
  • In changing weather conditions be cautious of icy path and road ways.
  • If you encounter a large animal, make noise and stay clear.
  • For an escort to your car after dark—go to the Library and ask the Library Assistant to contact a custodian to assist you.
