I would like to thank the Student Library Advisory Committe for putting forth effort and successfully keeping the library open for twenty-four hours during finals week. However, I think it would have been more helpful if the library was open twenty-four hours the week before finals as well as finals week.

Thanks for the suggestion. The library's decision to conduct this trial was in response to specific suggestions from the Student Government and involved considerable deliberation with SG representatives. Remaining open 24 hours involves considerable expense and presents significant staffing challenges for the library. We will be happy to consider your idea after we evaluate the success of extending hours during final exams.

It is a good idea to keep library open for 24 hours during finals week; however, most instructors hold finals before final examination week or on the last day of classes. In my case, the library will be of no use for me as far as my classes concerned.

Thank you for your input. The library hours will be extended until 10pm on April 20th and 21st, before the final examination period begins. We realize this may not meet the needs of every student. However, remaining open 24 hours involves considerable expense, and the trial period was selected in response to specific suggestions from Student Government.

We will be happy to consider your idea when we evaluate the success of this trial of extending hours during final exams.

Thank you for the 24 hour library services last week!! I think it was a hit with the entire student body. Although 24 hours may not be very feasible for the entire school year, I strongly suggest the student government and the library look into extended hours throughout the year. I think this will really enhance student life on our campus! Thanks again. Keep up the excellent work!!!
