MCC Library Lactation Room Policy
The Mesa Community College Library is committed to meeting the needs of mothers returning to MCC, both employees and students. This includes ensuring the availability of a lactation room, located in LB204.
The purpose of this policy is to provide nursing mothers with a private place to express breast milk for her nursing child for up to one year after the child’s birth. This policy is in accordance with the U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) which amended Section 7 of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
This room contains a lockable door, electrical outlets, chair, table, and sink. A refrigerator is located in the room next door. The room is available during Library business hours and can be reserved using a write-in reservation sheet on the inner door. The employee or student must provide her own pump, adapter, and accessories as well as a small cooler or insulated bag.
All room locations are close to restrooms. For further inquiries regarding the Lactation rooms, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
