 TO BOOK A GROUP STUDY ROOM:

  • Stop at the Circulation Desk.
  • Call us at 508-565-1313.
  • Please be ON TIME for your booking.
  • We strongly recommend that groups book a room at least one day and up to 2 weeks ahead.
  • We do allow an individual to check out a room key if no groups are waiting for a room. Individuals may not book a room in advance.

GROUP STUDY ROOMS ARE BUSY:

  • Please be kind to our student employees and staff; we are doing our best to accommodate as many students as possible.
  • We have 13 group study rooms to serve a campus population of nearly 2500.
  • Rooms may not be renewed due to the heavy volume of use. When your 2 hours are up, you need to leave the room and return the key, promptly. Library staff should not need to remind you.
  • Purpose: the group study rooms are intended to provide a place where a group of students can meet to work on a project or prepare a presentation.

TIPS FOR FINDING GROUP STUDY SPACE:

  • Try to avoid the busiest times of the day: 2:00-5:00pm and 6:30-10:30pm. Rooms are often open on weekends.
  • Try out the Disco; create a large table, use the technology to project your work.
  • Find a large table on the 1st floor (we don’t expect the 1st floor to be quiet) and grab a white board.
  • The Info Café might be available, ask at the Reference Desk.
  • Looking for a Quiet space: find a study carrel or a comfy chair on the 2nd or 3rd floor. Try out Rm. 106 (across from the Circulation Desk) on the 1st floor.
