How To Tuesday – Study Spots!

As midterms creep up on us all (can you believe it’s October??), we at Brookens Library welcome all patrons to our unique study spaces.

The first floor is not a quiet floor and is perfect for collaborative work. Look at Megan and Taylor having brain blasts!

The library stairwell lounges located on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors are also great for collaborative work. We have whiteboards and markers available for you to jot down all your brilliant notes and ideas. These collaborative spaces are also great for working alone if you don’t mind a little background noise.

Quiet study locations are found on the 3rd and 4th floors. When it is time to hunker down and focus on that reading or essay, get comfortable in our quiet and peaceful cubbies and tables.

On our quiet floors there are a few locations like lounges (pictured above) and large tables to also study quietly with friends. Or get into passionate—yet hushed— debates!

Finally, if you are someone who finds that their best work occurs when surrounded by nature, Brookens Library has plenty of tables to sit at outside.

Come seek out your perfect study spot at Brookens Library! Happy learning!

How-To-Tuesday: Study Spots

Study Spots

In this week’s installment of How-to Tuesdays, we take a look at what Brookens has to offer in terms of study spots. Do you work best when you can be alone, looking out into the horizon? We’ve got that. Do you need your friends and classmates around to talk through your assignments and keep you accountable? We’ve got that too. Plus, we have big, fluffy bean bag chairs, so you can rest your weary bones between assignments
