Library Group Study Room Policy

Library Group Study Rooms are intended for student study sessions, collaborative work, and short meetings by informal small groups. Group Study Rooms are not available for commercial purposes, including, but not limited to, private tutoring, or the offering or solicitation of goods, services, or memberships unless expressly allowed by the library Administration. Use of Group Study Rooms:

  • The Group Study Rooms are available during the library’s normal operating hours.
  • A reservation must be made by an East Brunswick or any LMxAC member library card holder age 13 or older and must be part of the group using the room. To reserve a room you must provide your library card or student ID.
  • Group Study Rooms A and B may be reserved up to two weeks in advance. Group Study Room C may only be reserved on the day of usage to ensure equitable access to walk-in patrons.
  • Group Study Room A is limited to a maximum of twelve persons. Group Study B and C are limited to a maximum of six persons. Additional furniture may not be moved into the rooms.
  • Group Study Rooms can be used for up to two hours per reservation. At the end of the session, if no other group has reserved the room, a group may reserve the room for an additional two hour session. A group may only sign up for one session per day for all group study rooms. Room reservations will only be held for 15 minutes, after that time another group may reserve the room.
  • Group Study Rooms must be vacated 15 minutes before library closing.
  • Users of Group Study Rooms will adhere to the library Code of Conduct and keep noise levels consistent with the proper atmosphere of the library at all times. Any materials left in the rooms will be removed to lost and found in the Circulation Department. Users of the group study rooms must clean up after themselves and leave the room in good condition. The person who reserved the room is responsible for the orderly conduct of the group and is liable for any damage to library property and/or equipment.
  • Failure to abide by library rules and policies may result in termination of Group Study Room privileges. Groups will be denied the use of a group study room if that use poses a potential disturbance to the normal operation of the library, e.g., excessive noise, a safety hazard, or a significant security risk. The Library Director or his/her representative may also deny the use of a group study room to groups that violate group study room policies.

The library reserves the right to allocate a study room for a library sponsored program or meeting. The library is not responsible for loss or damage of equipment, supplies, materials or any personal property owned by those reserving or using group study rooms at the library.  In addition, the East Brunswick Public Library Board of Trustees, the Township of East Brunswick, its officers, agents and employees are not to be held liable for any and all claims of injuries, including death, damages or loss, which may arise in connection with a group study activity held on library property.
