For Immediate Release

STILLWATER -After Thanksgiving break, students pour into the Edmon Low Library to study for finals and take advantage of the Library's 24/7 building access.

On Nov. 29, the Library will open at 1 p.m. and will remain open 24 hours until the last day of finals week on Dec. 11, when it closes at 8 p.m. The 24/7 hours allow students to check out laptops and course materials, while providing a place to prepare for finals.

"Students come to the Library during finals week because it's centrally located, it's a good place to study and they feel comfortable meeting with people here," said Rich Paustenbaugh, associate dean of research and instruction services.

The reference desk and the IM reference service will follow normal hours until Dec. 7. Service returns with the spring semester.
