Study Rooms Policy


Kahn Library

The Kahn Library is for group (minimum of two (2) people) study use. It is on a first come, first served basis, and limited to LTU employees and students enrolled for the current term. Advance reservations are not available. Please leave the room as you find it.

  1. There is a two (2) hour limit for each session. If no group is present to use the space at the end of the two hours, your group may request an additional two (2) hour extension at the Circulation Desk. If no extension is requested, you will need to vacate the space if another group arrives. 
  2. Time will not be extended if new members arrive to join the group.
  3. Individuals can use the Kahn Library if no group is present. If a group arrives, you must vacate the room.
  4. Library staff will inform you at the time of check-in if there is a conflict with the two (2) hour time limit. (Library staff use the space for programming, and this takes priority over all other uses.)
  5. Picture identification MUST be left at the Circulation Desk.
  6. Groups may have access to a room once a day, with consideration taken later if you return and study rooms are available.
  7. Your name can be added to a room wait-list if space is not currently available. This is not a reservation. It is your responsibility to check with Library staff to see if a room has become available. If a room empties, and your wait-listed group has not returned, the room will be given to another waiting group.
  8. Beverages MUST be in covered containers.
  9. Library staff reserve the right to make all Kahn Library decisions.
