We’ve had a few questions from some of you who will be spending Spring Break catching up on schoolwork. Never fear, we’ll be here. Our library hours stay the same over Spring Break, and the librarians will be just as available as they always are to help you with your research. So, if you have work to do over break, why not do it at the library?  Our hours are:

Monday – Thursday: 7:45am – midnight
Friday: 7:45am – 7pm
Saturday: 8am – 7pm
Sunday: noon – midnight
