    2. Valley Life Sciences Building/Bioscience, Natural Resources & Public Health Library: Not a lot of people know there’s a library inside of the VLSB since it’s not visible from the outside. However, this library has a couple of study rooms for you and your friends to collaborate in!
    3. Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Library: The main selling point of this library is its location. If you’re already on the east side of campus and don’t want to go back to Doe, you can hang out here before your next class.
    4. Business Library: Located in the Haas School of Business, this library has one of the comfiest and coolest chairs out there. Definitely check it out if ever you’re in the area.
