    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.

    The Powell Library building houses the main undergraduate library. One section is open 24hours/day for much of the quarter. Ray Bradbury’s “Farenheit 451” was written in the basement of this building. Read more

    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.

    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.
