Ekstrom library has recently extended its hours.

The East Wing of the library will be open Monday-Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., Friday 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 12:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.

The West Wing of the library will be open 24 hours Monday through Thursday. It also will close on Fridays at 5:00 p.m. Saturday hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and it will open on Sunday at 12:00 p.m.

The updated hours have changed from the previous schedule, in which hours were cut back in response to COVID-19.

“I’m really glad the library has decided to extend its hours again,” said Paige Workman, a senior student at U of L. “I think we all saw last year how difficult it can be to work from home, especially students because most of us have small living spaces.”

“It’s an amenity we were promised and so it’s nice to have the library back to being open most of the time,” she said.
