STILLWATER - It’s that time of the semester again: Edmon Low Library will open its doors at 9 a.m. Dec. 2, and it won’t be locked again until 8 p.m. on Dec. 14.
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, the reference desk and the reserve desk will only be open during regular library operating hours, however.
“The Library’s extended hours provide students a quiet, comfortable place to study, day or night,” John Degeorge, coordinator of Library security and facilities said.
Café Libro will extend its closing time during finals week to meet students’ snack and caffeine needs. The café will be open from 5 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Sunday, 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday.
The 24-hour access tradition, which began more than 10 years ago, was started by the Friends of the OSU Library.
