Reserve Cook Library Art Gallery

The Cook Library Art Gallery is an event space seating 48 persons (theatre or round table set-up) that is located at the north entrance on the first floor of Cook Library.

The first priority for the use of the Cook Library Art Gallery is for University Libraries' functions. If the room is not needed by University Libraries, it may be reserved for university faculty or staff, or for meetings of student organizations. Student organization advisers must reserve the room for student organization use. Standing meetings will not be scheduled for this room.

Problems with the room should be reported to the Libraries' Administrative Office (601.266.4241) Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. or to Circulation (601.266.4250) during evenings and weekends.
