Do you need to use a study room at one of our locations?

Study Rooms are available at Braden River, Downtown Central, Island, and Palmetto library locations. They may be booked for 2 hours on a walk-in basis or up to 7 days in advance. Patrons who do not arrive in a timely manner to use their booked study room forfeit its use for that allotted time.
