  2. NTU students can bring their children under the age of 6 into the Library after application.

[Article Four] Due to limited seats in the Library, there is a limit on the number of visitors allowed in the Library at one time. When that limit is reached, visitors seeking to enter the Library must wait in line to enter when visitors already inside the Library leave. Visitors’ personal books and backpacks are not allowed in the Library, and should be stored in the basement lockers. When visitors leave the Library, they must return their temporary library cards and retrieve their IDs.

The Library is not responsible for the safekeeping of the IDs that are not retrieved by their owners before closing time. 

[Article Nine] NTU Branch libraries may set their own rules and regulations due to their own requirements, and once these rules and regulation are passed by the Collegiate/ Departmental Books Committee and the Library work meetings, readers must abide by them.​
