Quiet Reading Room
If you’re looking for a more traditional library setting where you can work or read in a quieter atmosphere, then the Quiet Reading Room is perfect for you. You can choose from a multitude of seating options. There are tables and chairs as well as bar seating. There are also high back chairs, partially enclosed lounge seating, and more. You’re sure to find the perfect seat for the work you want to do. Best of all, there are power outlets located in every seating area, so you don’t have to worry about your laptop running out of juice.
On these lovely spring days who wouldn’t want to be outside? The library has an outside terrace on level 2, just outside the Quiet Reading Room. You can read, work, and socialize with friends while basking in the warm spring weather. The terrace even has fans and shade for those long summer days. While our plants haven’t come in yet, you can see the large planters that will house them when they do.
If you haven’t been on a college campus recently, you may not be familiar with social stairs. These are large stairs meant for sitting on while reading, working, or just socializing with friends. At the library’s social stairs, located in the middle of the library, you’ll find several outlets on each level that allow you to plug in your electronics while visiting the library to relax or get some work done.
Stairs to get to the upper level are to the left of the social stairs and for safety, we ask that guests not climb the social stairs to get to Level 2.
Study and Conference Rooms
If you’re needing space that offers a bit more privacy, then think of using one of the library’s study or conference rooms. The study rooms are varying sizes and depending on the room you choose, can house between 4-8 people. We have four conference rooms, two that can hold 20 people and two that can hold 12 people.
You can reserve a study or conference room online with your library card for as little as 15 minutes to a maximum of 2 hours a day. Study rooms can be booked up to 7 days in advance and conference rooms, meant for larger groups, can be booked up to 30 days in advance.
Study rooms and conference rooms all have a whiteboard and a monitor you can use to share your screen. Some rooms have soft seating with a built-in desk, while others have tables with chairs. By clicking on each room when reserving you can see the type of seating and the number of seats available.
These rooms are in high demand, so we suggest reserving ahead of time. Also, if you know you can’t make a reservation, please be courteous and cancel your reservations. This frees the room up for another guest to use.

The library’s Makerspace is a delight for makers! We have two laser cutters, three 3D printers, a CNC mill, a vinyl cutter, and a resin 3D printer coming soon. You must reserve equipment with your library card online. Each equipment has its own requirements and time limits to use, so make sure you read all the information regarding each machine before reserving online.
The Makerspace is a self-led experience with step-by-step instructions that you can follow to use each machine. We recommend giving yourself at least 30 minutes to set up each machine and familiarize yourself with the process. If you need design help, visit each of the Makerspace pages for each equipment and you’ll find tutorials and links to online classes.
