    • Study room 206 has a DVD and VCR.  It is for 2-6 occupants (but can hold up to 10 for special cases) .  It is available to any group regardless of whether or not they are using it to view media; however, we prefer to use it for larger groups and groups that need to watch or listen to media together.
    • All the rooms have electrical outlets and whiteboards.

    There are washrooms on each floor. Follow this link to library floorplans.
