It's official - as we first posted yesterday, the library will be closing at midnight. This was first confirmed exclusively to Mads by the library staff and Dean Kitzinger, and now has further been confirmed by VSA insiders.
The new hours are also now listed on the library website.
Rachel Kitzinger, the Dean of Planning and Academic Affairs who oversees the library, confirmed that both the circulation desk and most of the library will be closing at midnight Monday-Thursday.
The reduced hours may only be temporary. "We will try it out for a semester, with extended hours in certain crunch times, and then we will revisit the decision," Dean Kitzinger tells Mads.
Although representatives from the VSA at first said that the library would remain open past midnight, they now have acknowledged that they were previously misinformed and this will no longer be the case. Meanwhile, the VSA is working to set up a 24-hour study space outside of the library.
