Things to know before making a reservation
- Reservations for study rooms can be made up to two days in advance.
- Reservations may not be made for times outside of the library’s normal operating hours.
- Reservations must be made online. The library does not accept written, faxed, emailed or telephone requests for room reservations.
- You are responsible for making your own reservations. Library staff can show you how to reserve a room, but they cannot reserve the room for you.
- Individuals and groups of two people can reserve a study room for a maximum of two hours per day under one of the group members’ names. These rooms are a shared community resource. As such they must be made available to as many customers as possible. Exceptions will be decided on an individual basis by Library staff.
- View or cancel your reservation.
- A cancellation link is provided in your confirmation email that allows you to cancel your reservation if needed. Please use this link to cancel your reservation. If you reserved the room with your library card number and PIN, you can login to that website with that information to cancel. If you did not use a library card number and PIN to reserve the room, you can use the reference number you received in the email confirming your request. If you are unable to cancel your study room reservation online, please call the Library as soon as possible to cancel your reservation. Lexington Park: 301-863-8188; Leonardtown: 301-475-2846
