LaGuardia Reading Room Temporarily Closed

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–The most popular room in the Brooklyn College library was inaccessible to students on Tuesday, Feb. 4, because of a section in the new union contract that mandates adjuncts hold office hours for students.

The LaGuardia Reading Room on the second floor of the college library is a popular hangout spot for students on campus, on account of its size and quietness. Many students were vocal about the demand for the reading room to reopen for students, after a sign was posted on the door that stated “LaGuardia Reading Room reserved for Spring 2020 adjunct office hours only,” which led the students to believe that the reading room was closed indefinitely.
