Taft College Library offers five group study rooms for reservation. Reservations can be made up to two weeks in advance at the Circulation Desk. The check-out process for group study rooms must be completed at the Circulation Desk, requiring presentation of your Taft College Student ID (A numbers are not accepted).

Students are allowed to check out group study rooms for a maximum of two consecutive hours per day. To initiate the check-out, a minimum of two group members must be present, and a reservation can only be made by a group of two or more individuals. If a room remains unoccupied or has a single occupant for more than 15 minutes, it will be cleared to accommodate waiting groups.

All group study rooms must be vacated 15 minutes before the library's closing time. Per Taft College Library Policy, no food is permitted in group study rooms, though bottled water is acceptable. Please maintain a normal speaking volume, as the rooms are not soundproof. Library staff reserves the right to remove students who violate group study room rules.

Key points to note:

  • A minimum of 2 students per room is required.
  • Unoccupied rooms or those with a single occupant for over 15 minutes will be cleared for waiting groups.
  • A group is limited to using a room once per day.
  • Rooms not occupied 15 minutes after check-out become available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • All rooms must be vacated 15 minutes before the library closes.
