Please Note: Our Study Rooms Are Popular!

To accommodate the many, many patrons who want to use our study rooms…

  • If you have already checked out a room, you must wait until your session is over before checking out another. If rooms are available, you are welcome to another room! Just remember: it’s very likely that all the rooms will be in use and you will not be able to have a second session. If you are able to get a second session, it may be in a different room than the first!
  • If rooms are available and you are checking out your first room of the day, you may do so up to 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the session.

Please remember: our study rooms are a privilege that many libraries do not have. We try our best to accommodate as many patrons as we can every day. We want everyone to have a fair chance at using a room and these rules are in place to help ensure that!

Please see the study room use policy for additional information.
