The Library will Stay Open Longer Hours on Friday and Saturdays
The Bertrand Library will be open later on weekends due to an initiative launched by the Bucknell Student Government (BSG) that was approved this week.
Senior class representative Olivia Cohen ’14 led the project to keep the library open to students until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. Before these changes, the library traditionally closed at 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and they closed at 2 a.m. every other night of the week.
The change in hours will go into effect after Fall Break, Cohen said.
“Students have requested that the library stay open later to promote academics. Several faculty members have also voiced that they believe the library should be open later on the weekends for students who wish to study,” Cohen said. “Many schools have their library’s open 24 hours to promote academics, and I think this is a great step for the University.”
