Group Study Rooms

Study rooms are for use by groups of 3-4 people. Study rooms are available in two hour blocks except for the noon hour. To give as many people as possible a chance to use the study rooms, each group may have one daily use unless the rooms are not already reserved. To reserve a study room up to 24 hours in advance, sign up in person in the library or call 541-737-6782. Unreserved time slots will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
