Study and Collaborative Workspace:
The branch features several reading areas and two enclosed study rooms (available on a first-come-first-served basis). One study room has a white board. Most tables and seating can be moved and configured to suit individual or group work.
If you require quiet space please be advised that the branch is the busiest and noisiest on weekends and Thursday afternoons. If the program room is not in use staff would be happy to open it up for those seeking quiet areas to work.
