Extended Hours Offered at Greenwich Library for Final Exam Weeks


Greenwich Library will once again offer extended hours to accommodate the study needs of high school students during midterm exams in May and June. Dozens of students use the library as a quiet study space during exams, both as individuals and as an ideal location for group study. As always, library staff will be available to assist with reference questions.

For private school students the Main Library will be open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, May 30 through Thursday, June 1.

For Greenwich High students, the Main Library will be open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, June 8, Monday, June 12, and Tuesday, June 13. Additionally, the Main Library will be open 1 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 11. (There will be no extended hours Friday & Saturday; regular schedule applies.)

This year, the Byram and Cos Cob branches will offer extended hours for the first time. Byram Shubert Branch will remain open until 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 8 and Monday, June 12. Cos Cob Branch will be open until 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 1 and Monday, June 12.

Please note that no outside food of any kind is allowed in the library, including the café seating area.

“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.
