“Study Cubes” Now Open at Beaverton City Library

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Reservable study spaces called study cubes are now available at Beaverton City Library main, located at 12375 SW 5th St. The four study cubes are on the second floor—three in the northwest corner and one on the east wall. One of the study cubes is used by a social worker providing onsite resources Wednesdays through Fridays, in a partnership between Beaverton City Library and Community Action.

Study cubes, which can be used individually or by up to four people at a time, can be reserved online or in person once per 7-day period for up to two hours. Reservations can be made up to two weeks in advance. When not reserved, study cubes are available on a first come, first served basis. There is no cost to use the study cubes and a library card is not required.

Each study cube contains a dry-erase board with marker and eraser, a table with four chairs, and a 54” monitor that can be connected to via laptop. The library provides free Wi-Fi. Study cube users, like all visitors to both Beaverton City Library locations, must wear a face covering at all times.

Study cubes are the first item of the library’s 2018 space plan to be completed and made available to the public. They are often cited by community members as something they would like to have available in their library.

For more information and to reserve a study cube, visit www.BeavertonLibrary.org/StudyCubes or call 503-644-2197, option 2.
