I’m not sure if any floor of this library is considered a “quiet floor” anymore, specifically the 3rd floor, but if that rule is still in effect, I suggest you make it more clear that they are quiet floors. Signs used to be posted on the walls and now I no longer see them. This has been on ongoing issue for past semesters. I come here to study and receive the education I pay for. I find it awfully disrespectful that this is hindered whenever I step foot into Bird Library.
I am sorry that you have had difficulty locating a quiet space within the Libraries–seems to be a perennial problem.
The third floor of Bird is not a designated quiet space. Our website lists a number of designated quiet study areas in the Libraries, including the 2nd, 4th, and 5th floors of Bird. If you need more quiet, try the Quiet Reading Room on the lower level, where quiet is the rule. You might also consider heading to Carnegie Library, where the Reading Room is designated quiet study space.
You can report problems of any sort until midnight by calling or texting the Helpline at 315.416.7047. After midnight, the security office in Bird Library can be reached at 315.443.9754. If people are still unruly, Libraries’ staff will enlist the aid of Public Safety in addressing the issue.
Thanks again for writing us!
