The 3rd floor is my preferred study area because I like just a bit of background noise and activity, but lately the "Quiet Study" 3rd floor has been taken over by chatty groups. I've seen moniters on this floor very late at night, but the study groups seem to meet in the late afternoon/early evening--that's when we could really benefit from a staff member checking noise levels every hour or so.

I'm glad to know that you've found a preferred location at the library where you like to study and equally sorry to hear that not everyone is observing the "Quiet Floor" rules. Please know that our security officers will begin additional patrols of the 3rd floor in the late afternoons and early evenings to help enforce the study space guidelines for the 3rd floor. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this information, and please continue to send us your comments and suggestions.
