Library extends hours for private and public school finals
Greenwich Library will once again offer extended hours to accommodate the study needs of high school students during final exams in May and June. Dozens of students use the Library as a quiet study space during exams, making the Library an ideal location for both individual and group study. Library staff will be available to assist with reference questions.
For private school students, the Main Library will stay open from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Tuesday, May 31 through Thursday, June 2.
For Greenwich High School students, the Main Library will remain open from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14 through Thursday, June 16, and until 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 19. (There will be no extended hours Friday and Saturday, regular schedule applies).
The Library Café will remain open until 7 p.m. on the days listed above for snacks and study breaks. (The Café is closed on Sundays.)
“We are pleased to welcome Greenwich students to the Library during their exams. Our commitment to extended hours and our central location has made the Library a popular place to study among local students,” said Barbara Ormerod-Glynn, Greenwich Library Director. “Our entire staff is invigorated by the buzz of activity while students take advantage of this much-needed additional time to prepare for their exams.”
The Library will be open late primarily for students, but anyone can use the facility during these extended hours. Ormerod-Glynn also advised that as students like to study in groups, the noise level in the Library may be a little higher than usual, both during extended hours and regular Library hours on exam days.
