This is my first semester at IIT and my first impression was wow! we could talk, eat sleep , listen to music and watch movies apart from studies of course in a “library”!! indeed a great place to revitalize ones brain and I feel Galvin library is like taking our brain to GYM , you don’t want to miss the routine. I am looking forward for the finals week at Galvin library with lots food supplies to keep me awake and energized.

  5. I love to study at Galvin Library. I am a evening person (night owl), I study at night. It used to be my dream that 24 hours library when I was in college. Once I transferred into IIT, I loved to study in 24 library with my night owl friends. Most of my friends study at night too. However, our study times does not match all the time. Galvin library feels like second home for me. It has comfortable sleeping beans to sleep over. The beans used to be all black, nowadays its so colorful. I liked when its colorful because its feels clean. When I am hungry the eating area feels like living room. When I want to study with my colleague the group study rooms available. When I wanted to study alone, the quiet area is available with cubicles. I love the table lights from cubicle tables. When I need to relax, I can take a break in Kemper room. Feels like, I am not in library anymore. Most school text books are in Galvin library. After first semester, I use all my text books from Galvin library, I saved so much money. Absolutely safe place to study. The public safety can take me home, If I decide to go home middle of the night. Currently, 3D printer installed in Galvin Library. If I need stapler, 3 punch holes, sanitizer, printer, copy machines, microwave, vending machine, hot water refill all available in Galvin library. I love this Library. Most university libraries are 24 during the final exam but Galvin library is all the time. I love this library.

  6. Though I have a office seat in SB, I like study in the library. Because my office is in the basement, where there is no sunshine. I like study with sunshine. I think I will spend most of my time in the library, especially during the final week.

  7. Each time I entered Galvin Library, the student worker at the front would give me a big smile which impressed me a lot. Also, I had spent many happiness days here by myself or with my friends. The services and facilities are great here. It’s very convenient to borrow books, reserve a room for group study and print or scan documents. Especially, I tried the 3D printer, which is amazing except for the only white color available. Hope our library will get better and better.

  12. I am a freshman here at iit. I love the library. Whenever I need a quite place to go or just feel like looking at some artwork, my first thought is the Galvin library. The library provides computers and printers as well as everything else a college freshman could need. I love that I can borrow texts books from the library, and it’s great that they are always open on the weekdays.

  15. After nearly 7 semesters at IIT, I have come to think of the library as a sanctuary, where 24 hour access provides students with a safe haven to study during the most stressful nights of their college career. Additionally, with continual space improvements and longer opening times, the library really is a good place to get some studying done.
