Public Access to Sterling Memorial Library on Monday, May 23

May 20, 2016

On Monday, May 23, the Sterling Memorial Library (SML) nave will host the President’s Commencement Day luncheon for honorary degree recipients. As a result, SML will be closed to the public until 3:00pm. It will reopen at 3:00 pm until 7:45pm. The temporary Beinecke Reading Room and Manuscripts and Archives – both located in SML – will be closed for the entire day. Bass Library will be open during its usual hours of 8:30am to 9:45pm, although the tunnel between Bass and SML will be closed until 3:00pm. Because Commencement can be a heavy book-return day, the book-drops outside of SML will remain open until 3:00pm, after which books can be returned inside the building. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding. Details of access for library staff using SML on Monday have been communicated directly through the library staff email list.
