If you have need of a quiet space, or a spot to work collaboratively, we have 3 small, private study rooms on the second floor available for your use. One of the rooms is equipped with a whiteboard. All 3 rooms comfortably accommodate 4 people.
Because demand for study rooms is high, we can only guarantee use of a study room if you book it in advance. Each person or party may reserve a room for up to 2 hours per day; if the room has not been reserved by another party, you may stay longer. Reservations for study rooms are accepted up to 4 weeks in advance. You may reserve a study room online, at the Reference desk on the 2nd floor, or over the phone at (617) 972-6436.
