    Take a tour Bruin Day, 4/14, and experience UCLA’s living history. One of our four original buildings, Powell is home to 200,000+ volumes and great studying spots. Tours begin 1:30, 2, 2:30 and 3 p.m.

    Need a 2-hour reserve book overnight? Check it out in less than two hours before the library closes and you can bring it back the next morning. Ask at Circ/Reserves desk on the 2nd floor.

    Room (used to be a typing room) where Ray Bradbury wrote part of Fahrenheit 451 is in the basement, Room 60. Access from entrance on the east side of Powell. Look for plaque.

    Stop by the reference desk on the 2nd floor to tell us what you are working on. We can help you save time finding research materials. Or just stop by to say hello!

    No library will ever be better than Berkeley's main stacks. Though students work hard here! First week of school and the library was packed on a Sunday night.

    Some stunning architecture here. It's so wonderfully majestic in places you may be too distracted to read!
