Q: Is it possible to reserve one of the Sterling courtyards or reading rooms for a private function?
Answered by: Tanya Allen

There are several spaces available for functions in the Sterling Library:


·         Lecture Hall/and/or Memorabilia Room

·         Linonia and Brothers Reading Room ( L & B Room)

·         Nave and/or Selin Courtyard

*The International Room is currently being utilized by the Beinecke Rare Books Library during the renovation of the library, so it is unavailable for private functions/meetings.
