Own Your Zone during 24/5!

own your zone

The Library is open 24/5, which means it can get pretty noisy pretty quickly!

That’s why we need your help to keep the Library comfortable for you and your peers during our extended hours.

Use our new “Own Your Zone” cards to self-advocate and reduce noise the library.

SilentZoneCardOwn Your Zone cards serve as a non-confrontational way to ask your peers to respect the study zones. Library staff regularly enforce the noise policies, but we need the help of the entire campus community to keep the Library a calm, respectful environment for all, especially during 24/5.


Library staff will amp up the enforcement of noise policy during Finals Week, but we can’t do it alone!

We need everyone in the Purchase College community to respect each other and help keep the Library a clean, peaceful, and comfortable place to study during Finals Week.

If you can’t find an Own Your Zone card, you can also text a librarian at (914)873-1711. Report the noise problem and tell us your location, and a staff member will come to address the issue as soon as possible.  After Text Us hours, or in the event of a delayed reply, please tell a staff member at the Reference or Circulation desk.

To review the Library’s study zones rules and locations, please visit purchase.libguides.com/studyzones.

Best of luck with finals!
