Meem Library offers a variety of study areas designed to accommodate up to half of the student body. Comfortable couches, study tables, private carrels, outside balconies, and a maximum use of natural light provide a contemplative atmosphere, which fosters careful reading and quiet reflection.
The Ault-Evers room is named after Bromwell Ault and Walter Evers both of whom served on the St. John's College Board of Visitors and Governors. The room showcases the library's Special Collections.
