Library Hours During Final Exam Period

Beginning on Monday, December 1 and extending through the evening of Monday, Dec. 22, the Gould Law Library will be open as a study hall around the clock, except for Friday afternoon – Saturday evening, in observance of the Jewish Sabbath. The library will close as usual at 2:45 p.m. on Fridays, but will reopen on Saturday evenings at 6:00 p.m. With this exception, the library will remain open 24 hours a day. Students using the library after midnight must sign in at the security desk. Library services will not be available during the overnight period, although a security guard will be on duty.

The Gould Library also will expand its “quiet zone” for the final exam period. Effective on December 1, the entire library (with the exception of the circulation desk, the reference office, and enclosed study rooms) will become a quiet zone to maximize available study space. After exams, the soft seating area on the main floor will resume its status as a quiet conversation area, in accordance with student requests.

As always, drinks in enclosed containers are welcome in the library. Please enjoy light snacks (such as candy and chips), but consume other food (sandwiches, salads, hot meals) outside of the library.

The library staff extends its support and best wishes to students as the final exam period approaches.
