Study Rooms

The library has two collaborative study rooms. Both study rooms contain whiteboards and display monitors which can be connected to laptops. The study rooms must be reserved either by calling the library or stopping by.  These rooms are limited to groups of 2-5 people for two hours at a time and can be reserved up to 10 days in advance.

  • Policy:  FVCC Student, Staff and Faculty can reserve the Study Rooms for group study (two to five people) for up to 2-hours. Study Rooms are not available to community members during the school year.   
  • Note:  If the Study Rooms are not available when needed, check with Library Staff to determine the availability of other rooms.

Classrooms

There are two classrooms available for student use.  These classrooms can seat up to 20 people each, and can also be set up as one larger classroom when the room divider is removed. The classrooms feature mobile chairs and tables.  Students can connect laptops to a 70-inch monitor in each classroom. There are also several mobile whiteboards, as well as whiteboards secured to the wall for student use. 

  • Policy:  Community members cannot reserve this space at present.

Makerspace

This room has a seating capacity of 20 with mobile tables and chairs, a whiteboard wall, and a sink. 

  • Policy:  Community members can reserve space after 4:00 pm during school year.  Reservations can be made up to three months in advance.

Studio

Users can record videos or create podcasts in this room.  The One Button Studio has a simplified video recording setup that can be used without any previous video production experience. Users can create high-quality video projects without having to know anything about lights and cameras. There is a lightboard available in the studio for writing out content such as diagrams, math problems, or flowcharts.  A lightboard is a projection screen that provides a surface upon which the user can write bright, legible writing that is reversed so the audience can easily read the text.

Podcast Station

Besides the main recording station in the One Button Studio, there is a separate audio/video recording station, called a Marantz Professional Turret, with laptop available inside the room. Like the One Button Studio, all users need to bring is a flash drive to save the recording.
