The Mann Library lobby is a gathering place where visitors can find casual seating to study, eat, or converse. Located on the first floor (map it), there is a kiosk displaying Cornell community information, close-captioned CNN, and a bulletin board for academic flyers. There are two private cell phone booths available and a display of rotating lobby exhibits.
Student groups and Cornell departments can reserve a table in the lobby for the display of materials. Use of the lobby is limited to academic related activities only. Please check the lobby calendar to find an available time.
Request a table at least 3 days in advance using the lobby reservation request form. Reservation requests are subject to review and approval by Mann Library. You will receive an email from the library once your reservation request has been reviewed. The review and approval process may take up to 2 business days.
For more information, please review our Lobby Tabling policies.
We accept slides from the Cornell Community for display on the LCD screen in the lobby of Mann Library. For more information, please review our Lobby Kiosk policies.
Manndible Café, a staple on the Cornell campus since the renovation of Mann Library in 2007, features local and sustainabily produced food, including freshly brewed Gimme coffee, homemade soups, and the ever popular burrito bar.
