Quiet Study Areas

Some libraries are shushy.  George Fox's are not among them.

However, one function of the libraries is to serve as a refuge from the day-to-day hustle, a sanctuary insulated from the noise and busyness characteristic of modern life.

At the Murdock Library, conversation is fine on the main floor and inside closed study rooms, but the top floor is strictly quiet space.  Individual study carrels ring the perimeter and are ideal for focusing with minimal external distractions.

Look for signage reminding you of the need to be respectfully muted.  Violators will be shushed.
