If you’re concerned about where you’ll find a quiet, safe place to study during exams this semester, your worries are over. Hackney Library’s got your back with its ever-popular “Study Round the Clock,” held during Reading Day/Exam Period every semester.
This semester, the event will kick off on Reading Day, Thursday, December 5, at 8 am, and will continue through 6 pm on Wednesday, December 11. Each “Study Round the Clock,” we provide 4 nights of 24-hour accessibility to the library building for students with a current Barton ID (and security provided by police officers during the midnight-to-8-am shifts). Here are the hours we will be open during Study Round the Clock:
Study Round the Clock (SRTC) Hours:
- Thursday, Dec. 5 through Friday, Dec. 6: SRTC begins: Library opens 8 am Thursday; and remains open until closing at 8 pm Friday, when SRTC pauses.
- Saturday, Dec. 7: SRTC pauses: 10 am – 7 pm (regular hours)
- Sunday, Dec. 8 through Wednesday, Dec. 11: SRTC resumes: Library opens 2 pm Sunday and remains open continuously until closing at 6 pm Wednesday.
- Thursday, Dec. 12 through Friday, Dec. 13: SRTC is over: Library is open from 8 am to 5 pm.
“Study Round the Clock” provides an additional 32 hours that the library will be open during exam period compared to the regular semester. In addition, during exams, free coffee, tea, apple cider, and hot chocolate will be available while supplies last to Barton students, faculty, and staff.
During these 24/7 periods, library services will be available from 8 am until midnight only. From midnight until 8 am the following morning, no library services will be available, but a police officer will be on hand providing security during that time. (Access will be limited to Barton students only during the midnight to 8 am time slots. Barton ID will be required for admission from midnight until 8 am).
So plan to visit Hackney Library during exams (remember to bring your ID for admission after midnight!) to get some extra study time in, and get your favorite hot beverage for free!
“Study ‘Round the Clock” is sponsored by Hackney Library, the Friends of Hackney Library, the Barton College Office of Student Engagement and Success, and the Barton Student Government Association.
