Private, glass-enclosed study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis; reservations are not accepted. You can sign in for an available study room at the Reference or Circulation Desks.
These rooms are intended primarily for one-hour study sessions for a broad number of library users, and are not intended for multi-hour use. If an arriving user requests a room and your party has been in a study room for an hour or more, you may be asked to release the room. If you would like another session, your party is free wait for the next available room. To encourage the broadest possible use of the rooms, we ask that you limit your party’s signup to once per day.
All times are according to the Library’s clock.
