Month: December 2010

Early Closing 12/21 and 12/22

The Library will close at 7pm on Tuesday December 21, 2010. The 24-Hour Zone will be open after 7pm. On Wednesday December 22, 2010, the Library will close at 4:30pm. There will be no 24-Hour Zone in the building past 4:30pm. The entire facility will be closed.

Laptop Security

We witnessed at least four unattended laptops in the Library during lunchtime today. An unattended laptop is one of the easiest things to steal. Don’t let it happen to you!  

Laptop locks are available for borrowing at the Circulation Desk so you can secure your computer to the table top. Keep wallets, cell phones, MP3 players and other personal items with you at all times. Safer studying is happier studying!

Expanded 24 Hour Zones during Final Exams

Beginning tonight, there will be expanded 24 Hour Zones in the Library. Now open for the remainder of the semester are Levels 2 and 3 of the Grand Reading Room.
