  • Reservations will be forfeited if the group is more than 15 minutes late.
  • The Library reserves the right to cancel your reservation if needed, but will try to contact you in advance and relocate your group to another room if possible. Administrative staff meetings and testing services have priority over all other reservation requests.

The Library is not responsible for belongings left in the meeting rooms or any other area.
