Family Study Room Policy

The Family Study Room (Lower Level, Room 143) is a place where parents can bring their children and study. The room does not provide childcare, but offers a family friendly place for students who are parents to study and work on projects with their children. The space provides child-friendly furniture, children’s books, toys, and technology. Other learning resources can be checked out at Maag Library and the Curriculum Resource Center.
  • A room key can be checked out at the Maag Circulation Desk with your current YSU ID for three-hour intervals. Child must be present. 
  • Available on a first-come, first-served basis, and cannot be reserved in advance.
  • Additional room use time may be requested, depending on demand.
  • Three families at a time can share the room, including any equipment and resources.
  • Do not leave your child unattended at anytime. Parent/guardians are responsible for their children’s safety and behavior. If an unsupervised child comes to the attention of library personnel, YSU police will be contacted.
