Greenwich Library Announces Extended Hours During Final Exams

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, both as individuals and as an ideal location for groups. As always, Library staff will be available to assist with reference questions.

The Main Library will remain open until 10:00pm on Tuesday, May 28 through Thursday, May 30; and Monday, June 10 through Thursday, June 13. The branches will also offer extended hours. Cos Cob will remain open until 8:00pm on Tuesday, May 28 and Tuesday, June 11.

Byram will remain open until 8:00pm on Monday, June 10 through Wednesday, June 12. Note that extended hours dates are subject to change depending on the schools’ schedules.

For refreshments, the Library Café will remain open until 7:00pm. Please note that no outside food of any kind is allowed in the café seating area, whether open or closed.

“We are excited to welcome Greenwich students to the Library as they prepare for final exams,” said Barbara Ormerod-Glynn, Greenwich Library Director. “We often hear from students how much they value and depend on the Library as a calm place to study with friends or on their own. This is the time of the year when our students need us the most and we are pleased to serve as their community hub.”

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.
