Review the following guidelines for scheduling a group visit.  Scroll to the end of this page for the link to submit a request for a group visit, after reading the information below.  

Logistics

This can be a single group or multiple groups meeting separately or combined. Please do not come to the library with more than 6 people without a group reservation. This ensures that staff, building facilities, and computers will be available to support your group and its objectives.
  • Request Procedure: All requests for group visits should be made using the link below for the online registration form. Telephone reservations are not accepted. Each request will be confirmed by email within 1-2 days. Please check for your confirmation and reply to it, acknowledging your agreement with and receipt of it.

If none of your dates and times are available, you will be advised to submit a new request. To help avoid requesting a time when computers are not available, at the bottom of this page, go to "Click here to see available dates and times". Because we often are at scheduled capacity, please do not bring a group to the library on a night your reservation has not been confirmed.
