Library Study Rooms 

The Mountain House Library has four study rooms for patrons to use.  Three small study rooms that hold up to 6 people in each and one larger, conference sized study room that can be used by up to 12 people at a time. These rooms can be reserved in advance in person or by phone.  Please find here the rules for reserving and using the study rooms. 


Mountain House Library Study Room Rules 

  1. Patrons can only reserve the study rooms one time in advance.  They can book it, then when they come to use that booking they can book it for a future day.  Study rooms CANNOT be reserved by patrons on a weekly basis, e.g. every Tuesday at 1pm.   
  2. Library and MH CSD programs have priority when it comes to booking the rooms. 
  3. Patrons need their own library card or other form of i.d. to sign up for a study room.  That person takes responsibility for the room and any items in it and 
    will be charged for any damage. 
  4. No more than 6 people can be in the smaller study rooms. No more than 12 people can be in the conference room. 
  5. Study rooms may be reserved for up to 2 hours at a time. Extensions may be made under certain circumstances.  If an extension is given it’s only for up to 2 more hours for a total 4 hour limit per day. 
  6. NO FOOD OR DRINKS allowed in the study rooms.
  7. Patrons must check-in with library staff when they arrive for their study room reservation and need to let staff know when they are finished with the study rooms when they leave. 



We are taking sign-ups for yourself, your class, your organization, etc. to highlight a display at the library.
