Greenwich Library Has Extended Hours for Public and Private Schools Exam Weeks

Greenwich Library will once again offer extended hours to accommodate the study needs of high school students during final exams in May and June.

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 independent school students the Main Library will be open from 9 a.m. to – 10 p.m. on Thursday, May 24, Tuesday, May 29, Wednesday, May 30, and Thursday, May 31.

The Library is closed on Monday, May 28 for Memorial Day.

For Greenwich High students, the Main Library will be open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, June 14, Monday, June 18, and Tuesday, June 19. Additionally, the Main Library will be open 1-6 p.m. on Sunday, June 17. (There will be no extended hours Friday & Saturday; regular schedule applies.)

This year, the Byram and Cos Cob branches will also offer extended hours. Byram will remain open until 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 14 (regular evening hours), Monday, June 18, and Tuesday, June 19.  Cos Cob will remain open until 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 14 and Monday, June 18 (regular evening hours).

For refreshments, the Library Cafe will remain open until 7:00 pm on Thursday, May 24 and again from Tuesday, May 29 through Thursday, May 31; Thursday, June 14; Monday, June 18 and Tuesday, June 19.  The cafe is closed on Sundays. Please note that no outside food of any kind is allowed in the cafe seating area, whether open or closed.

“Extended hours have become a favorite semi-annual tradition. Our commitment to Greenwich students has made our three Libraries a popular place to study,” 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.
