O’Grady Library is open daily during the fall and spring semesters, typically just over 87 hours per week. Students, faculty, and staff should remember to bring their ID for access after 8 p.m., and the local community is welcome until that time. To support students during the critical final weeks of each semester, the library offers extended hours. Specific hours and holidays are listed below.
