Study Rooms and Reservations

The MSMC Library offers a variety of spaces that can be used for group or individual study, presentation practice, Information literacy class sessions, meetings, and events.  These rooms are reserved through the college's Astra Room Reservation system. If you are unfamiliar with Astra, please contact Deborah Meissner, Library Administrative Assistant,  by phone (845-569-3602) or email (deborah.meissner@msmc.edu) for assistance.

Study and Presentation Practice Room Reservations for Students

Though all our study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis, it is highly recommended that rooms be reserved in advance to ensure availability at the desired time. Currently enrolled students may reserve a study room by stopping at the Check-out Desk (on the 2nd floor) or the Reference Desk (on the 1st floor). You may also call the Check-out Desk at 845-569-3600.

Meeting and Event Space Reservations for Faculty, Staff, or Students

If you are scheduling a meeting or an event, such as a speaker, performer, workshop, conference, etc., it is essential that you visit the library space you have in mind PRIOR to reserving it to ensure that it meets your needs.  Once you have identified the desired space, you must request the space via Astra.  You must also submit facilities, IT, and catering work orders for room set-up, tech support, and food service.  The library does not provide these services.

Meeting and Event Space Reservations for Community Members

Community members who wish to use library space for meetings and events must follow campus-wide policies for facilities use. To learn about these policies and make a reservation, please contact Marcy Latella in the Operations Office at marcy.latella@msmc.edu or 845-569-3364.
