Public Study Carrels

The following rules govern the use of the public study and research carrels in the library. 

Rules

  • Public carrels are available on a “first-come, first-served” basis and may not be reserved.
  • Only one person may use an individual public carrel at a time. Groups of two or more studying together should use the group study rooms or open seating on the ground and first floors.
  • This is a quiet floor, so noise must be kept to a minimum.
  • Public carrel doors may not be locked.
  • When the carrel is being used, the carrel light must be on. When finished with the carrel, remove all items, turn out the light, and leave the door open.
  • Carrels are not to be used for storage. Unattended items left in a carrel will be removed.
  • The library is not responsible for theft of personal belongings placed in any carrel.
  • Nothing is to be affixed to carrel walls or windows. The use of nails, tape, tacks, glue, etc. is prohibited.
  • Users are responsible for removing any trash to a receptacle outside the carrel.
  • The use of personal electronic devices (such as computers, e-book readers, video or audio players with headphones, etc.) is allowed. However, the use of personal appliances such as coffee makers, hot water pots, microwaves, etc. or flammable items (e.g., candles) are expressly prohibited.

Please report any problems with carrels to the Circulation Desk, or call (724) 357-2340.
