Herrick Library was built in 1957, expanded in 1978 and extensively renovated in 2007 providing seating for nearly 300 students. The renovations included the creation of a wide variety of learning and work spaces making it possible to accommodate virtually any individual or group study preference:

  • Leondar Learning Commons
    The Learning Commons on the first floor is a non-quiet work space. Technology in the learning commons includes public computers, a laserjet printer, a color printer, and a scanner. Tables and chairs can be arranged for individual or group work.
  • Computer Lab
    The computer lab on the first floor (opposite the library's front desk) has sixteen public computers and a laserjet printer.
  • 24-Hour Study Room
    The 24-hour study room room on the ground floor of the library is open all night when classes are in session. The room has twelve public computers and wireless Internet access for personal laptops (library laptops may be checked out during the hours that the library is open). Vending machines and restrooms are accessible. When the library is closed, the room is accessible through an entrance on Park Street and requires an access code.
  • Group Study Rooms
    Four group study rooms are located on the second floor. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each room has a table and six chairs. Laptops may be checked out at the front desk.
  • Presentation Practice Room
