Group Collaborative Rooms

Individuals may use the rooms if they are available, but might be asked to move locations should a group request to use the space. Each room includes a table, chairs, ample electrical outlets, and a whiteboard (erasable markers are available upon request). Some rooms might have a television. Doors may be closed for additional privacy. Please note, although the collab rooms cannot be booked by the public in advance, one or more of the rooms may occasionally be booked for Library use.
