The Morse Institute Library offers the use of its rooms to further its roles as a place to meet and interact in meaningful ways, to learn and stay informed, and to celebrate and enjoy diversity. The library’s rooms are a community asset and we encourage their use by area community groups when not in use for library purposes. We have two types of rooms available, meeting rooms and study rooms.
Study Rooms are available on the 1st and 2nd floors, and are for quiet study by small groups or individuals. Reservations are on a first-come, first served basis. An email address is required to make a reservation as well as to cancel your reservation. You will receive an email confirmation of your registration. Study Rooms can be reserved a maximum of 14 days in advance for up to two hours per day. Patrons are allowed ONE Study Room reservation PER Day. Please understand you must vacate the Study Room if someone arrives with a confirmed reservation. Study Rooms close 15 minutes before the library closes.
Individual study carrels and quiet work tables are located on the Clarendon Street side of the building on both floors. In addition, the 2nd floor offers several areas for quiet study including the Periodicals Hall, the Prunaret History Room, and the Washington Street side of the building.
All study carrels and most work tables have power supplies so that your electronic devices can be powered up inside the library.
Chromebooks are available on the 1st Floor only at this time.
Desktop Computers are available on the 2nd Floor and Lower Level for Adults, Teens, and Children.
