The end of the semester is on its way—and the Leatherby Libraries is gearing up for the fall semester’s finals. The library is continuing its tradition of being open 24 hours a day during the last two weeks of the semester. From Sunday, December 6, 2015 through Friday, December 18, 2015, library facilities will stay awake with students as you finish projects and prepare for final exams. During the late night hours, the following services will be available: circulation services, bookable study rooms, and print/copy services.

Public Safety will make rounds periodically throughout the night and the security monitor stationed in the Rotunda will also be on duty. For any concerns and additional protection, students can contact Public Safety for an escort to their vehicles or residence halls on campus.

In addition to making the library available 24 hours a day, Leatherby Libraries will be offering the popular “Cookie Study Break” tables again this year. Students can find a quiet table on the second and third floors with free cookies as long as supplies last. Vegan and gluten-free cookies will again be available at the circulation desk for students upon request. At night during the last week of finals (December 14-18), coffee and tea will also be offered, generously sponsored by the Student Government Association.

To celebrate the return of free coffee and cookies, student library worker Melanie Duke created a fun comic to highlight the service.


Best of luck to all students on their final projects and exams—everyone here at the Leatherby Libraries is cheering you on!
