During quarantine, the entire library is closed. The Reflection Room, located on the first floor of the Library Media Center, is a place for quiet reflection. No studying or sleeping is allowed in the room. The room is open to all students for reflection purposes. Individuals are not allowed to post anything in the room and no personal belongings should be left in the room. We ask that all individuals respect the privacy of anyone who uses this room.

If you are studying in a room alone and a group comes, you will be asked to move. Excessive noise in a study room, after one warning, will result in a call to Public Safety.
