Leatherby Libraries Extends Hours for Finals
December 5, 2016
The Leatherby Libraries will be open 24 hours each day during the last two weeks of the semester:
Sunday, December 4, 2016 through Friday, December 16, 2016
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. Students using the library can contact Public Safety for an escort to their vehicles or back to the residence halls.
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 cookie table on floors 1, 2 and 3.
Vegan and gluten-free cookies as well as some healthy snack options will also be available at the circulation desk for students upon request.
Starting on Sunday, December 11, there will also be coffee available. There will be two separate deliveries at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., sponsored by the Student Government Association (SGA).
Whether you’re hitting the books late at night or during the day between classes, we know that students are on the hunt for quiet study spaces. We’ve put together a list of new and hidden spots to study in the Leatherby Libraries – from the open, collaborative space on the first floor to the silent reading rooms on the lower level. Learn more about those study spaces at the library’s blog.
