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 Page Desks on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors.
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 to seek an available room on another floor; Page Desk staff can also call to check availability for you. To encourage the broadest possible use of the rooms, we ask that you limit your party’s signup on a given floor to once per day.
All times are according to the Library’s clock.
