A group of students approached President Mick Starcevich and VP of Academic Affairs Bill Lamb last spring with a request for the library to extend its hours. They felt students would benefit from having access to the library later in the evening Monday through Thursday. We began looking at how many students used the library in the evenings and decided it would be worthwhile to extend the hours and see if students used the extra time. We are doing this on a trial basis this academic year (both fall and spring semesters). We will look at how much the library is being used during the extended hours and make a decision in April or May as to whether we will offer the extra hours next academic year.
We invite all students who are looking for a Late Nite place to study to come to the library. More information about services from the library is available at www.kirkwood.edu/library .
