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.
- However, whenever all the rooms for a particular time slot are checked out, we start checking out the next time slot as a courtesy to those who are waiting. On very busy days this means all the rooms may be checked out almost 2 hours before a time slot begins!
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.
