Willis Library: First Floor

Noise Level: Social

This area is designated for casual use and lively group work. Expect busy spaces, conversations, and noise from electronic devices.

About This Space

A popular study area, the first floor has comfortable casual seating, computer workstations, and study tables. This is where you’ll check out most books in Willis (except Music). Study with a group of friends and check out our featured monthly books and bestsellers on display, too.

The first floor can get pretty loud during peak hours of the day. Need something more quiet? The lower level is our designated “quiet” floor, and the third floor is typically pretty quiet, too.


We have a print release station, scanner, microform scanner, and assistive devices to meet your needs.
