Other Policies

Classroom space

The Corette Library is an academic library, and Carroll College students are our highest priority.  Therefore, classes are given precedence over all other room reservations, including previously booked events.  Should your event be moved for a class, we will work with you to find an alternate space to accommodate your needs.  If another space will not work for you, you may ask the instructor to make arrangements with you. 

The Sandbox Classroom is available to faculty to teach technologically enabled sections of their courses.  It is also available to students who wish to work on projects and study.

 

Noise

Lectures, discussions, and DVDs are often louder than you realize from inside the room, and can disrupt others using the library.  Please shut the doors while your class, presentation, or meeting is in session.

The temperature of some rooms can be uncomfortable when filled with breathing bodies, especially the Sage Room (235).  We are working with facilities to correct the temperature issues in the rooms.  In the meantime, we have quiet fans that you are welcome to borrow – inquire at the Circulation Desk.

 

Food and drink

No food and drink are allowed in the Sage Room.  If you wish to serve refreshments at an event in the Sage Room, please consult with the Circulation Supervisor to see if arrangements can be made.

The Library does not have the facilities or equipment to provide, serve, or store refreshments; you are welcome to bring your own food, drinks, and dishes.

The Associated Students of Carroll College provide a Keurig coffee machine in the library. ASCC and Dan Case provide Keurig beverage pods for sale, but you may bring your own to ensure you have the amount and variety you need.  Powdered creamer and sugar are generously provided by ASCC and Dan Case. Please bring your own mug.

 

Equipment

Reservations are recommended for any equipment you would like to use in your reserved room. You may fill out the equipment reservations form here

 

Reservations

Reservations for rooms are highly recommended. We cannot guarantee the use of a space unless reservations are made. 

An event booked in a room will be given priority over any other events, impromptu or planned, that have not been booked. 

If there are no events booked in a room or space, we follow the rule of "first come, first served."

To make a reservation, you may fill out our room reservation form or, contact the Circulation Supervisor at mallen@carroll.edu or 447-4346.
