Know Your Library - Tour | Leonard Lief Library

This guide highlights what you can find at the Leonard Lief Library.

Study Zones

Why are Study Zones Important?

Dedicated areas in the library help improve concentration. Students come to the library to find a place to read, study, write and work on assignments on their own or with a study group. Dedicated Study Zones are created so students can focus on their work. 

Please respect the rules of each study zone and be mindful of your peers.

While the Library staff will do their best to enforce this policy, we need the cooperation of the entire community.
