Quiet Study Areas

The Libraries have designated certain areas of Bird Library for quiet study in response to feedback from library users that they need a quiet environment to focus and study. The Libraries have posted signs to remind users of where these quiet areas are located.

Please be courteous

When you are in these quiet areas, please refrain from cell phone and other conversations. Move to another area of the Libraries if you need to talk.

We can help

Library staff is available to reinforce our expectations of quiet on these floors. Please let us know if other Library users are overly loud in your quiet area by texting 315-416-7047.
