Wheeled Transportation


Bicycles, skates, scooters, skateboards, and other methods of pedestrian transportation (other than manual or motorized wheelchairs, walkers, and baby strollers and carriages) can be hazardous inside the Upjohn Library Commons building, whether they are ridden or parked.


Patrons may not ride pedestrian transportation within the Upjohn Library Commons building at any time, with some exceptions (see below).
Most forms of pedestrian transportation should be secured to the bicycle racks outside the Upjohn Library Commons building. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Bicycles
  • Unicycles
  • Non-foldable scooters (such as the Segway Human Transporter)
  • Motorized transportation

Smaller, portable forms of transportation may be kept with the patron at all times for security of personal property. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Skates (rollerblades, inline skates, roller skates, etc.)
  • Foldable scooters
  • Skateboards


The Upjohn Library Commons welcomes visitors who require pedestrian transportation for mobility. Therefore, there are exceptions to the pedestrian transportation policy. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Wheelchairs
