The library has five study rooms/small group meeting rooms available on a first-come, first-served basis. These rooms can be used for quiet study and meetings with a maximum of four (4) people. No food or drink is allowed in the study rooms. Each room is equipped with a table, four chairs, large monitor, computer, and whiteboard. The study room policies are available here.

You can sign up for a study room at the Reference Desk. You do not need to have a library card, and there is no charge to use a study room. Patrons can use a study room for up to two hours a day (if available), for a maximum of 10 hours a week.
