Study rooms can be checked out with a PVLD library card on the date needed with the library’s online reservation system. You may access the reservation system on any smartphone, tablet, or computer or on a catalog computer at Peninsula Center Library.
The Peninsula Center Library has 18 study rooms - 12 rooms (A-L) for up to 3 people and 6 rooms (M-R) for 3 to 8 people.
The study rooms are checked out on the hour in 1 or 2-hour blocks of time starting when the library opens. Only one study room session may be checked out at a time.
If you have already reserved a study room time slot, you must wait until your slot is over or cancel the slot before the software will allow you to reserve another. If rooms are available, you are welcome to reserve another time slot. Keep in mind that it’s possible that all the rooms will be in use and a second session may not be available to you. If a second session is available, it may be in a different room than the first. See all study room availability at a glance here.
Alternatively, if all of the study rooms are reserved, there is a quiet individual study area on the 3rd floor of the library.
Please remember that our study rooms are a privilege that many public 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!
Q: Can I reserve a room over the telephone?
A: No. Reservations can only be made by visiting the online reservation system.
Q: Do the study room doors have locks?
A: No, study rooms are not locked; the library is not responsible for belongings left in the rooms.
