Here’s how to book, and a few things we ask of you!

 

Do:

  • Make a reservation ahead of time. You can reserve up to a day in advance:
    • By email: snflteens@nypl.org 
    • By phone: 212-340-0925
    • In person at the Teen Center information desk
       
  • Bring food and covered drinks—but not hot meals!
     
  • Talk with the Teen Center staff about rules for using the room.
    • Only one reservation can be made per day. Extensions are given on a case-by-case basis.
    • Check the reservations white board! If a block has initials, it means it's been reserved for someone. 
       
  • Be mindful of who’s next. Please pack up a few minutes before the end of your reservation so that the next party can use the space on time!
     
  • Leave the room how you found it. If you don’t clean up after each use, you may lose your room use privileges. 

 

Don’t:

  • Hang out in the Teen Center if you’re not a teen! Parents and caregivers should sit inside the study room if they want to monitor any tutoring session. Thanks for keeping this space exclusive for our young patrons.
     
  • Be late! If you do not show up within 15 minutes of your scheduled time, you may forfeit your reservation.
     
  • Make multiple reservations if you're part of the same group of people. It’ll just get confusing.

All patrons who use these rooms must follow Library General Policies and Rules in addition to these regulations.

Please note that availability of the rooms is subject to last-minute changes and approval of reservations by Youth Services staff for Library use.

See you there!
