Happy Fall Break!

We’re already halfway through the semester, which means Fall Break is here. Even the Library takes a break at this point in the semester, which means we’ll have limited hours this weekend:

Friday, October 8th:
8:00 am–4:30 pm

Saturday–Monday, October 9th-11th: Closed

We reopen at 8:00 am on Tuesday, October 12th. Also, the Pro Deo Room as well as the New 24 Hour Space will be open all weekend, and are accessible by swiping your Royal Card. You can also get help from a librarian while we’re closed via our 24/7 Chat Reference service.

Enjoy the time off everyone!

Thursday, April 1st: 8AM-4:30PM

Friday-Sunday, April 2nd-4th: Closed

Monday, April 5th: 12 Noon-11:30PM
