Need recommendations on a quiet place to study

Postby olikatz » Fri Jun 24, 2016 4:13 pm

I just found out all the libraries in the county that I live in will be permanently reducing their hours on the 1st and will begin closing right when I get off of work. My entire study plan on weekdays depended on me going to the library right after work, but now I'm stumped on where I could go. Any suggestions? I basically just need somewhere with a desk. I could always study at home, but I feel as though there are many opportunities for distraction there. I know that some people go to Starbucks, but I don't think I'm ready to start studying with ambient noise just yet. Other than that I don't know where else to go.

I bought a desk and put it in my bedroom, which doesn't have anything in it besides a bookcase and closet/dressers, so there aren't any distractions unless I decide to browse the internet, which you could also do at the library. now I save driving time and can eat whenever I want, which is really convenient. is there really anything in your house that you couldn't stop from distracting you? I have this one and like it a lot: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30302299/ -- not very big though!

Are there any universities near you? My schools library is open to the public until midnight.

I thought about the local CC by my house but I would have to buy a parking pass and I would really only have about an hour to study before it closes. Small community colleges suck!

I might just stick to studying at home. I can always buy a good pair of earplugs and put the desk against an empty wall. Hopefully I can focus this way

I feel you with distractions at home. One thing that helped me focus/make me less distracted was the fact that I turned off my phone, any time I would be working with just packets I would have my computer closed and put away, and for the love of god don't have the television on haha! With these three things I was able to really hone in on increasing my focus, and I really have to emphasize putting the telephone away, doing this alone made my concentration sky rocket! :mrgreen:

I know some people go to the grocery store to study during less busy times. Whole Foods has that section where you can sit to eat.

That's not a bad idea. I never thought about it, but there's a whole foods by my work that I can go to on my lunch break
