Study Rooms

Study alone or meet with a small group. Reserve a room for two hours, up to one week in advance.

COVID-19 Alert

Available As Usual

Study rooms are still being cleaned periodically, but custodians are no longer strictly cleaning between every single patron. Please plan accordingly.

The library has four study rooms available at no charge. Study rooms fit up to five people and include a whiteboard.

Study rooms may be reserved for 2 hours per day, up to a week in advance. Otherwise they are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once your 2 hours are over, you may stay longer as long as no one else needs the room; a librarian will notify you if the room is needed for another patron.

To reserve a room, visit the Reference Desk, call 860-828-7126, or email

The library has a few other areas that are good for studying, including several large tables in the middle of the library and high-tops by the windows.

We do have a few rules to give everyone a fair chance to use a study room.

Sign In at the Reference Desk

  • When you arrive, please visit the Reference Desk to sign in.
  • If you haven’t signed in, and someone else requests the room, we will assume you’ve been in the room for the maximum amount of time.

2-Hour Time Limit

  • You may use a room for up to 2 hours per day.
  • After 2 hours, you may be asked to leave the room if another patron is waiting.
  • You may stay in a room past your 2 hours if no one else is waiting.


  • You may reserve a room up to a week in advance; otherwise, rooms are first come, first served.
  • Your 2 hours begin at your reserved time, not when you arrive. If you need to change your reservation time, please call in advance.
  • Your reservation is for a time slot, not a specific room. We will try to accommodate your preference, but will not ask another patron to vacate your requested room if another room is unoccupied.
  • No-show reservations will be canceled after 15 minutes.


  • Please do not leave a mess in the study room.
  • Please keep noise to a minimum; rooms are not soundproof.
  • Please bring any study room issues or conflicts to a staff member.
