Study Room Etiquette

 Keep it down

  • Conversations must be held to a reasonable noise level.  The study rooms are not soundproof, and loud talking disturbs other users studying in the area.

Keep it clean

  • Leave rooms in a clean and orderly condition: clean the whiteboard, do not leave garbage behind, and return furniture to its original position.

Keep it civil

  • Please be decent to one another and share these rooms in a spirit of cooperation. If a problem arises, do your best to work it out. If you cannot come to an agreement, contact library staff at the Circulation Desk for assistance.
