Welcome (back), and When you can do What at the Library

Welcome, new students and faculty, and welcome back, old friends! The library is ready to receive you. We’ll open for the semester on Sunday, September 1 at 12:30 pm and look forward to seeing new students with their peer advisor groups on Sunday from 2-4 pm.

You probably know that once the library opens for the semester, we’re open 24/7 right up through Winter Break. You can come in, study, socialize, borrow/return books, work/print/scan/copy in the computer lab, or do whatever else you wish (subject to the College Handbook and the Library Honor Code, of course) whenever it tickles your fancy.

There are certain things, though, that you can only do when staff are on duty. These include: borrowing reserve readings; borrowing DVDs; picking up holds or interlibrary loans; and getting into the Plan Room.

Staffing will be a little atypical during the first couple days of the semester:

  • Sunday, 9/1: 12:30 pm – 5:30 pm
  • Monday, 9/2: 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

Thereafter, our normal staffing schedule will be in effect:

  • Sundays: 12:30 pm – 5:30 pm; 6:30 pm – 11:00 pm
  • Mondays-Thursdays: 8:30 am – 5:30 pm; 6:30 pm – 11:00 pm
  • Fridays: 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

One other special task — borrowing equipment — can only be done when full-time staff are on duty (M-F, 8:30-4:30; Sunday 12:30-5:30).

Please plan accordingly!

We’ll always list changes to our schedule — building or staffing — on this blog, in the Town Crier, and on the library’s Facebook page and Twitter feed. If you ever have questions (about hours, staffing, or anything at all), please stop by, email us (library@marlboro.edu), or call x221 (802-258-9221).

We are looking forward to working with you this year!

Library Director
