Group Study Rooms
Guidelines for Use of Group Study Rooms
Due to the high demand for group study rooms, the Library will be giving preference to Farmington Community Library cardholders. Patrons wishing to utilize a group study room must present their library card before signing up at the Information Desk.
Patrons without Farmington Community Library cards may sign up for a vacant room, but will be asked to relinquish the room if a group with a Farmington Community LIbrary card would like to utilize a room. Tutors from the Oakland Literacy Council are always welcome to use the group study rooms.
The following guidelines for use of the small group rooms are still in effect:
- The small group study rooms are to be used by groups of two or more. At least two members of your group must be present before sign-up.
- Please sign up at the Information Desk before using one of the group study rooms. We have four group study rooms: two rooms (seating up to 6 people each) in the Non-Fiction area and two smaller rooms (seating 2 or 3 people each) located in the Browsing Area. Priority use for Literacy Tutoring Room #2 will be given to those using the ELLIS language instruction program.
- There is a two-hour limit when another group is waiting. Groups may only have access to a room once a day, and time may not be extended when new members arrive. Please let a librarian know when you are finished using the room
- If a room is not available you may have your name added to a waiting list, provided at least one other member of your group is present. It will be the responsibility of your group to check with a librarian every fifteen minutes to see if a room has become available. If a room remains empty and your group has not returned, it will be given to the next group.
- Librarians reserve the right to make all group study rooms decisions.
