Library Opening Guidelines
The Library is open - but there are a few guidelines.

The Library is open Monday - Thursday 8:30 - 12:30. Students who are not enrolled in a current on-campus class need an appointment to get into the building.

In order to make an appointment, online-only students can contact the library via any of our contact methods (text, email, or online chat). In the appointment request, students will need to supply: full name, banner number, and requested date/time to visit the library.

Upon arrival, students will need to enter through the L2 door (across from the Welcome Center) and will be asked to sign in and fill out Covid-related forms. They will then be able to come to the library, but will need to sign in here as well for contact tracing purposes.


Library Returns Notice:
If you have library materials to return, there is now a bin at the entrance located across from the Welcome Center (Lafayette Hall, L2). You can drop off the materials without entering the building as the bin is between the two doors. Meanwhile, all due dates for library materials have been extended to September 1, 2020. You can also keep the borrowed materials until then or the school reopens.
