Library Hours for Hurricane Dorian

During the upcoming weekend the library will observe the following hours due to Hurricane Dorian:

  • Friday 30 August: Regular hours,  8:00 am to 6:00 pm.
  • Saturday 31 August – Monday 2 September: CLOSED

The library will reopen whenever the University deems it safe. This will depend on a variety of factors, most notably whether or not the library has power. A new announcement will be posted here on the website when the date of the reopening is known.

Please follow all University and NHC advisories about the storm, and stay safe!
