The second floor overlooking the river is now an official “Quiet Study Space.”
This change is in response to student feedback on the survey and in focus groups.
Through these methods, we learned that many students come to the library specifically for quiet study spaces. Responses identified the area overlooking the river (officially called the Reeves-Garner Reading Room) as the preferred place to create our first official quiet study space.
The first floor, third floor bean bag room, and group study rooms are still available for group work and other forms of “unquiet” study.
If you have questions about the new quiet study area, please contact Kate Pitcher, Director of the Library, Archives and Media Center.
