The Davis Family Library will be providing extended hours during the last week of classes and the exam period.
24/7 hours will start at 9:00 am on Sunday, 5/5 and will end at 8 pm on Tuesday, 5/21. Bring your ID – card access is required between 11 pm and 7:30 am (9 am on Saturday and Sunday). Guest passwords for computer access will not be issued between the hours of 11 pm and 8 am.
Armstrong Library will have regular hours during this period, with later closing times on Friday 5/17 and Saturday 5/18.
Check here for up to date hours at all Libraries.
24/7 hours are in full swing at the Main Library.
Staff in Circulation Services coordinate the day-to-day (and night-to-night) operations of 24 hour services, with the support of many staff across LIS, User Services, Custodial Services, and Public Safety.
A special thanks to Steve Bertolino for his late night coordination of this effort and to Terry Simpkins – who braved the very first overnight shift of the season. I’d also like to extend a special thanks to the Custodial Team who carry an extra heavy cleaning burden during the 24/7 period.
It takes extra effort to provide 24/7 services, and it is good to know that the effort is appreciated by our students – especially during this time of reduced resources and staffing.
A couple of reminders:
24/7 access requires a Middcard between 11 pm and regular opening times.
24/7 hours are in effect this week and next – until 8 pm on Saturday 12/12.
LIS will once again be offering 24/7 to our students 11/29 – 12/12.
Here is your opportunity to experience the Main Library at night!
Interested in flexing your schedule and adding a little excitement to your work week? Working nights instead of your usual ho-hum day schedule?
If so, check with your supervisor and be in touch with your availability.
The shifts are 12 midnight – 4 am and 4 am – 8 am. All nighters also welcome.
The deadline for letting me know is Thursday 11/12.
Movies, music, snacks and caffeine will be available.
