Over the next two weekends the library service desk will have extended hours so that you can study longer for your exams!  On December 6th, 7th, 13th, and 14th we are open 10AM-10PM.  We should also note that this year, since the T is running later, our building will be open a bit later on Saturday. Swipe access will end as usual at 11PM, but you may remain in the library until 2AM!  So if you find yourself lost in study you won’t have to leave by midnight.  Good luck with your exams!
