Have a good winter break!

Arts and crafts during the fall finals study break in Musselman Library.
Congratulations on another semester done! It's been a wild finals week in the library, and we hope we were able to do our part to make your studying go as well as possible--whether that be with a comfortable study nook, coffee and tea at midnight, or a snack during the finals study break. When the library is empty and the printers are no longer humming, we'll certainly miss you all.

If, however, you're going to be hanging around a little while longer in Gettysburg, feel free to swing by and load up on some books to read over the break. If you have a long drive, don't forget the audiobooks on the ground floor in front of the DVD section. Check our hours to see when we'll be open.

Have a great break, and we'll see you in January!

Finals Week at Musselman Library

It's finals week! For many of you the library becomes a second home as you buckle down to study for exams and finish up your papers. And we're ready for you! The library will be open 24 hours until 5:00pm on Saturday, 12/17.

Finals week also means CUPCAKES! Don't forget to come to the study break tonight, 8 - 10pm in Room 018. Enjoy a break from the books with some cupcakes, crafts and games.

Need to talk to a librarian? The hours for the reference desk this week are:

Monday, 12/12: 9:00am - 5:00pm & 6:00pm - 10:00pm
Tuesday, 12/13: 9:00am - 5:00pm & 6:00pm - 10:00pm
Wednesday, 12/14: 9:00am - 5:00pm & 6:00pm - 10:00pm

The reference desk will close for the break Wednesday night, but you can still get help from a librarian! Stop by the reference office, Room 102 on the main floor of the library, e-mail us at, or ask at the circulation desk to talk to a librarian. We're here to help!

Also, if the library during finals week is too full to suit your study style, why not try one of these places:
  • Breidenbaugh Hall- open 24 hours
  • Schmucker Hall - open 24 hours
  • Science Center - open 24 hours
  • Glatfelter Hall - open 24 hours (3 computer labs- rooms 201, 203, 204)
  • McCreary Hall - open until 11pm (1 computer lab- room 204)
  • CUB- M-F open until 2am; Saturday until 8pm

Best of luck on all your finals!

Do finals have you stressed out? Need to relax and unwind? Do you love games, crafts and CUPCAKES?

If you said yes to any of these questions check out the Musselman Library Study Break on Monday December 12 in Room 018 from 8-10PM. In addition to snacks and drinks, there will be a variety of different activities including cupcake decorating, Wii games, boards games, card making, snowflake making, origami and the creation of a Lego city!
