I don't go to SMU. There I said it.

Still, I need a convenient and quiet place to study as Starbuck's and BN are getting old and Border's is well, gone.

Is the public allowed into SMU's library (like my old college) or do they check ID's?

Any info would be appreciated.

Not sure about SMU, but most college libraries I have been to require you to swipe a student ID to enter.

Like the poster above, I don't go to SMU, but the private college I attend doesn't require ID to enter the library.

I used to study / research @ the SMU Fondren Library (the main one) in high school and never needed ID to get in. That was pre-9/11 though. I think it's definitely worth a try though!

Have you tried HP town library for studying?

This is from SMU's website about the law library - looks like there are some public access hours:

I need a bit of traffic and people about or I fall asleep. HP's library looks too sleepy, plus I don't think they're open that late.

Thanks. Hopefully they're not too strict about the later hours.

Half Price Book (75 and NW Highway) is nice and quiet, with Starbucks and Black Forest Coffee right there. Maybe another option there?

I graduated from SMU Law. If you walk in without hesitating, they probably won't check. If you act like you haven't been there, they will check

Yes and there is an even better, quieter library at the SMU religious school that not many people go to.
