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 single use one-hour study sessions for a broad number of library users.  The rooms 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 will be asked to release the room. Groups are also limited to one hour and may not sign up individually. You may not sign up for the other study room if you have already had 1 hour.

All times are according to the Library’s clock.

Other things to know about the study rooms:
