In theory, yes. Our website and the signs posted in the group study rooms state:

Group Study Rooms...are available for collaborative learning... individuals may be asked to leave. Please contact the Circulation Desk (phone 570-389-4205) if you need assistance.

If you are in a group looking for a group study room to study and believe that people are using a room to to watch television for recreational purposes only, then call the Circulation Desk and ask them to speak to the people in the room. They can let them know others need the room for academic purposes. However if the people in the room are viewing television while they are doing academic work, then this is not something we regulate. I may not like someone's study habits -- for example, I don't personally recommend listening to music on ear buds while typing a paper -- but it is not the Library staff's responsibility to enforce good study habits. Hope this clarifies things.
