Up late at Parks Library

They'll be burning the oil well past midnight in Parks Library this fall, as staff extend hours to accommodate the study needs of record numbers of students.

Five days a week, Sunday-Thursday, Parks Library will be open until 2 a.m. -- two hours past the midnight closings in previous school years. Extended hours begin on Aug. 26.

New hours


12:30 p.m. – 2 a.m.


7:30 a.m. – 2 a.m.


7:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.


10 a.m. – 8 p.m.

Some library services close earlier than the library doors. For example, on Monday through Thursday, the media center closes at 8 p.m., the help and information desk at 9 p.m. and the circulation desk at midnight (self-checkout is available after that).

Library hours also vary during breaks and holidays. Detailed information on library hours is online.
