  • Reservation may be made up to one week in advance. To reserve a study or viewing room, use the Reserve a Room Service or contact or visit a Circulation desk:
    • Coe Library (307) 766-3190
    • Library Annex (307) 766-5165
    • Media (307) 766-5531
  • Rooms may be reserved for a maximum of 4 hours each day, per group. The names of all group members must be submitted when making reservations.
  • Users must make a reservation and check in at the appropriate Circulation Desk prior to occupying a study or viewing room. Photo ID must be presented to access rooms.

Room Policies

  • No individual or group may reserve a room multiple times in the same day. At the end of the original reservation, users may extend their time only if a room is available.
  • Library staff may cancel a reservation for users determined to be unfairly monopolizing rooms.
  • Study and viewing rooms are intended for group or individual study. Rooms may not be used for regularly scheduled classes and meetings.
  • If no member of the group arrives within 15 minutes of the reservation time, the reservation will be cancelled by library staff and the room made available to others.
  • Rooms must be vacated immediately at or prior to the end of their reservation so the next user is not kept waiting.
  • Users must refrain from making excessive noise and disturbing other library patrons.
  • Rooms must be secured at all times. Users of study and viewing rooms are responsible for the loss or damage of personal belongings or library equipment during their reservation.
  • Users must clean up after themselves and leave the room in good condition.

*Abuse of study room and viewing room policies may result in the loss of room privileges.
