TCC Library: Study spaces

Reserve study rooms here

Quiet study - "medium noise" areas

Except for designated "Group Study" areas, the majority of the first floor of the library is quiet study - in other words, this area is a "medium noise" area. For complete silence, students may use the Silent Study Room located in the far south corner of the library. 

Silent study room

For complete silence, students may use the Silent Study Room located in the far south corner of the library. This room is devoted to silence, meaning no talking of any kind. Ask at the front desk for directions to this room or just follow the yellow footprints in the library!
