That means that the Library Service Desk on the 4th floor will be open 10am to 10pm on:

Saturday, March 24th
Sunday, March 25th

Saturday, March 31st
Sunday, April 1st

And just to make sure you can really maximize every minute of that time, we will have free coffee for you! The coffee will be on both Saturdays at 6pm on the 4th floor, set up on the long tables in front of Food 4 Thought Cafe.

Please note: the Sackler building hours will be unchanged, so you will be able to swipe in as early as 6 am and stay until midnight. The Extended Hours strictly affect how early and late the Library Service Desk is staffed.

We look forward to seeing you bright and early and late into the evening the next couple weekends!
