Library 101: Final Exams and Christmas Holiday

Posted on: Thursday, December 3rd, 2015 by Holly McCormick

As December begins and the year quickly draws to a close there are two big things left to the year – final exams and the Christmas Holiday.

First, those sometimes dreaded final exams start next week. The library strives to help students through this time of year, a time when studying and papers keeps everyone up late into the night trying to finish out the school year. Starting Tuesday December 8th, the library will extend its hours. During these hours please feel free to utilize the library not only as a quiet study space but also for its resources and reference assistance. We are here to help you! Here are the exam hours:

Tuesday, December 8th – 7:30 AM – 1 AM

Wednesday, December 9th – 7:30 AM – 1 AM

Thursday, December 10th – 7:30 AM – 1 AM

Friday, December 11th – 7:30 AM – Midnight

Saturday, December 12th – 7:30 AM – 5 PM

Sunday, December 13th – 2PM – 1 AM

Monday, December 14th – 7:30 AM – Midnight

Tuesday, December 15th – 7:30 AM – Midnight

Wednesday, December 16th – 7:30 AM – 6 PM

Also remember that all materials are due back to the library BEFORE you leave for the Christmas Holiday! If you would like to keep materials out over the break you MUST speak to someone at the circulation desk to avoid items being billed to your student accounts.

After the late nights and the stress of finals, Christmas is a welcomed break. With decorations going up around campus and the surrounding community, the church bells chiming Christmas carols, Christmas plays and Christmas movie marathons playing on TV, it is hard not to get into the Christmas spirit throughout the entire month. Here are some suggestions of Christmas CDs and movies that are available at Kelly Library to help you relax a little at the close of the semester.
