Extended hours for the library

September 29, 2011

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff, 

The Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons has extended its open hours in response to ASSU and student requests—particularly for increased hours on Sundays—and to support the university’s new block schedule for classes.  

The library will now be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday, an increase of four hours of study time. Additionally, in order to support the many classes that begin at 7:45 a.m., the library will also open earlier on weekday mornings, at 7:30 a.m. 

Since Monday, Sept. 19, the library and learning commons has been open as follows: 

Sunday, 11 a.m.- 11 p.m. (Previously, 1-9 p.m.) 

Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m.-11 p.m. (Previously, 8 a.m.-11 p.m.) 

Friday, 7:30 a.m.- 6 p.m. (Previously, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.) 

Saturday, 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. (Previously the same) 

The increased hours are in response to a longstanding request from students, including a resolution passed by the Associated Students of Seattle University in November 2010, which read in part: “Whereas many students are requesting additional library operating hours….[l]et it be resolved that as library staffing budgets are prepared for 2011-2012, extra hours of operation, especially on Sundays, are considered.”
