Public Address (PA) system
The public address (PA) system in the Parks Library is used to announce the routine closing of the building each day, as well as emergency situations such as tornado watches and warnings. The PA system is not to be used for routine paging of library staff or users. If you need to page an individual in the Parks Library due to personal or medical emergency, contact the Department of Public Safety's Police Division ((515) 294-4428). DPS authorities will review the request and, if appropriate, arrange for emergency paging within the Library.
