For Immediate Release

STILLWATER -The Edmon Low Library will be open 24/7 beginning April 22 and lasting through May 4. The extended access lets students prepare for finals at times that work with their hectic schedules.

During the extended hours, the Library provides access to six floors of study space and reference materials, as well as making laptops, MacBooks and iPads available for round the clock check-out. Reserved study rooms and the reserve desk will only be open during regular library operating hours, however.

Johnny Johnson, head of access services, said, “The extended hours provide students the facilities and space to study 24 hours a day during the pre-finals and finals weeks.  They can review library resources from the library computers and find quiet areas for study.”

Café Libro will also extend its closing time by 30 minutes to meet the snack and caffeine needs of students, from April 29 to May 3.

The Library will open at 9 a.m. on Sunday, April 22, and will remain open until 8 p.m. Friday, May 4. The tradition, which began more than 10 years ago, was launched by the Friends of the OSU Library.
