About our Study Rooms

Anyone with a registered library card in good standing can reserve one of our 2nd-floor study rooms up to a week in advance. Patrons are limited to one study room booking a day for up to two hours. To reserve a study room, use the "Reserve a Study Room" link at the bottom of this page, our library app, or one of the reservation kiosks available at the Reference and Youth Services desks on the 2nd floor. Learn how to get a library card.

Please note: A registered library card in good standing is required to use a study room. If you need a library card or have a card from a library other than Northbrook, please visit one of our Welcome desks in the lobby to register your card. Study rooms cannot be reserved over the phone or in person. You will need your library card number and PIN/Password to use a study room. If you don’t know your PIN/Password, you can reset it here. For assistance reserving a study room online, please visit the Reference Desk on the 2nd floor or call 847-272-4873.
