Library sound levels

The Library is a busy place, so it’s important to know where to go depending on whether you need a quiet place to study or a place where you can work with your group. Starting this semester, you’ll see signs around the building letting you know which floors are “quiet study” (4th and 5th), and which floors are “active study” (2nd and 3rd). You can also grab a free pair of ear plugs at the Check Out Desk or the Media Library Desk if you’re looking for “deep quiet.”
