Fall and winter are great seasons for settling in to a comfy chair with a good crossword, a compelling book, or a warm quilt– and they’re also great seasons for settling in to a less-comfy wooden chair in our reading room with a compelling whaling logbook, an 18th-century scientific treatise, or a folio of beautiful architectural plates.
To celebrate the arrival of these studious seasons, we’ve extended our weekly open hours. You now have your choice of seven different hours during the week when you can stop by Special Collections unannounced and appointment-free.
The new open hours are:
Tuesdays: 10:00 – 1:00
Wednesdays 3:00 – 7:00
Of course, we’re still open by appointment during other times when the library is open, and you’re welcome to call ahead if you plan to come to open hours and would like to see specific materials during your visit.
