Pull Books: I have books I would like removed from my carrel. I have already turned the carrel slips to show "return to circulation" on top.

Request 'Carrel Assigned' Sign: Request a "Carrel Assigned" Sign be placed on your carrel. These signs are placed on carrels upon initial assignment but somtimes get pulled off. Please do not request a sign immediatly after your carrel has been assigned to you, please wait at least a week. Thanks.

Blown Desk Light: Report that the light in your study carrel needs to be replaced.

Spill / Mess: we ask that food and drinks not be used at the carrels, however if there is an old spill or mess on or around your carrel you may notify us of it.

Remove Carrel Assignment: You no longer want your study carrel and want us to remove you from it so another patron can use it.
