During Summer 2021, EKU Libraries is shifting and moving its physical collections on the 4th floor. Need quiet study over the summer? We recommend sticking with the Silent Study Zone which will be remain unaffected by the shifting and moving. Or please ask at the help desk for recommendations for best quiet places to study away from shifting and work areas.



Need a quiet place to study? Visit the 4th floor of the Main Library for enforced quiet study.

On the 4th floor silent study you will find:

Some tips:

  • temperatures vary significantly on the 4th floor - dressing in layers is recommended
  • if all the desktops are in use, try checking out a laptop from the help desk and finding a good spot on the 4th floor if you need a quiet place to do computer work
  • Forgot your earbuds? Over-the-ear headphones are available for checkout at the help desk

And don't forget that the 4th Floor of the Main Library is always quiet! If someone is talking, playing music, etc. don't hesitate to ask them to observe silent study or to relocate to another floor of the library that will better suit their needs.

Please see our alert at the top! The library is working on the 4th floor over the summer and we'll be making some necessary noise in specific areas on the 4th floor to improve our collections!


Don't feel comfortable doing that? Then make a noise complaint by letting us know via chat when we are online or by visiting us at the desk (whenever the Main Library is open), and we'll be happy to have those conversations asking others to observe quiet study on the 4th floor.

We do try to make regular rounds of the quiet study floor, but we appreciate you helping us out and letting us know if we miss somebody not observing silent study on the 4th floor.
