Hours for Reading Days

Musselman Library will be open this weekend … just not as many hours as normal.  Here’s our schedule:

Friday, 10/9 – close at 8 pm
Saturday, 10/10 – open 10 am to 6 pm
Sunday, 10/11 – open 10 am to 6 pm
Monday, 10/12 – open 8 am to 11 pm
Tuesday, 10/13 – open 8 am … resume 24-hour schedule

That’s right, we’re open all night long on Tuesday 10/13.

The Reference Desk closes Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm and reopens on Wednesday morning at 9:00 am.  If you need to consult with a librarian about your research, stop by room 102 on the main floor or ask for a reference librarian at the circulation desk.  The friendly students there can locate someone to help you.  Or, try using our email reference form.  Most of the reference department is away on Monday, 10/12, but we’ll be around on Tuesday to assist you.

Have a restful and/or productive break, whichever one you need the most!
