Private Study Room

Private Study Options at the Canton Public Library


Rooms which can be used for private study are located on the second floor of the library and may be reserved for individual study, tutoring or for small group study (depending on the room). Reservations are made on a first come/first served basis either online or by telephone through the Reference Desk.  (Call 781-821-5027)   “Walk-ins” can be scheduled as availability allows.  

Limited scheduling for private study is available in our Local History Room, Aldrich Meeting Room and Maker Space.
