BYU's Lee Library posts extended hours, holiday schedule

Brigham Young University's Harold B. Lee Library is keeping its doors and services open later during December to serve students at the end of the fall semester.

Continuing through Thursday, Dec. 16, the library is open until 2 a.m. on weekdays and midnight on Saturdays. However, the smaller Office of Information Technology Open Access Labs by the periodicals section will not be open later than their regular posted hours.

The available library services after hours includes the Circulation Desk, Information Commons, Learning Resource Center, General Reference and Security.

The Information Commons provides a group-study environment with an array of technology for students to complete collaborative projects, and the Learning Resource Center now houses the largest centralized computer lab with more than 180 computers for students.

Security's Safe Walk program, where security officials walk students to their cars or dorms late at night at the request of the student, will also be available during later hours. To participate in the program or for questions, please visit http://police.byu.edu/community%20education/safewalk.htm.

Shane Hatch, a junior from Phoenix, says he enjoys the option of staying later at the library instead of studying in his apartment.

"If I'm at home, I'm guaranteed to study on the couch," Hatch says. "And if I study on the couch, I'm guaranteed to fall asleep."

Following the last day of finals, Thursday, Dec. 16, the library will curb its hours to open at 8 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. until winter semester begins in January.

The library will be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. For additional information, please call the library at (801) 422-2905 or visit www.lib.byu.edu.

October 11, 2021
When an organization’s mission or actions are out of line with what people who have a stake in that organization expect, the legitimacy of the organization is called into question. This lack of legitimacy causes an organization’s stakeholders to perceive it as self-centered and untrustworthy.
