ROOM 1019: Absolute Quiet Room

Joyner Library is pleased to announce room 1019 is now an absolute quiet room.  The absolute quiet room is designed for library users wanting space free of nearly all ambient noise.  In addition to the prohibition on talking or headphones, cell phones and other devices must be silenced (not just set to vibrate) upon entry.  The creation of this quiet space is in response to the spring 2014 student survey.  The room is open during normal library operating hours.

The third floor remains a quiet study area although cell phones, headphones, etc. are permitted.  Security guards will increase patrol of the area to better enforce reduced noise levels.
