The Library also will expand its “quiet zone” for finals. Effective Monday, November 23, the entire library (except for the circulation desk, the reference office, and enclosed study rooms) will become a quiet zone to maximize available study space. After exams, the soft seating area on the main floor will resume its status as a quiet conversation area, in accordance with student requests.
Drinks in enclosed containers and light snacks (such as candy and chips) are welcome in the library, but please enjoy other food (sandwiches, salads, hot meals) outside of the library. The library staff extends its support and best wishes to students as the final exam period approaches.
