Students are petitioning to extend recently reduced Meriam library hours.

As previously reported on by The Orion, the library’s hours were cut and the money saved would go toward IT services.

New hours include:

· Sunday: First floor opens at 10 a.m., All floors open from noon to 11:45 p.m.

· Monday to Thursday: All floors open from 7:30 a.m. to 11:45 p.m.

· Friday: All floors open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m.

· Saturday: First floor opens from 10 a.m. to 9:45 p.m., All floors open from noon to 4:45 p.m.

The new library hours limit the opportunities students have to succeed and reach academic achievement, according to the petition. We have found that many of students’ grievances arise out of limited access to a non-distraction, learning-conducive study environment.

“We have found that many of students’ grievances arise out of limited access to a non-distraction, learning-conducive study environment,” the petition states.

Students are hoping to extend the hours to be from 7:15 a.m. to 2 a.m. on all floors during regular weekdays, all floors from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. during regular weekends and allow 24-hour access to all floors during the week prior to and the week of finals, according to the petition.
