    Great library. Visit if for the architecture. Remember that the higher you go, the quieter it is.

    Great place to study now, outlets are abundant and very quiet. Even a couple study rooms available with whiteboards.

    The Geisel Library houses the world’s largest collection of original Dr. Suess manuscripts and other materials. Dr. Seuss (Ted Geisel) was a one-time resident of La Jolla.

    There's a lot of desks with power outlets, which I like. Some do not work, the individual desks on the end for example.

    Sitting at the top west side will likely blind you for most of the afternoon, but be sure to take a study break and check out the last few minutes of sunset.

    There are self-checkout stations, with the book thumper and everything. Significantly more fun than at the grocery store.

    See the sunset from the eight floor it's really beautiful, but be really quiet up there.

    GIS lab is downstairs to the left when you enter. Higher floors are great for studying since the view is a nice distraction.

    Pretty quiet and nice place to study, while CLICS can get loud during peak times. Just cross the street after Library Walk ends. Watch out for hidden puddles that form on the sidewalk when it rains

    Top is known to be crazy quiet but bottom floors are group whisper to light talk friendly.

    Sometimes it's just nice to go up to the top of Geisel and enjoy the views without studying.
