Greenwich Library extends hours for exam weeks

Greenwich Library will 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, making the Library an ideal location for both individual and group study. Library staff will be available to assist with reference questions.

In May, for private school students, the Main Library will stay open until 10 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26, Wednesday, May 27 and Thursday, May 28.

In June, for Greenwich High School students, the Main Library will remain open until 10 p.m. on Thursday, June 11, Monday, June 15 and Tuesday, June 16. (There are no extended hours on Friday, Saturday or Sunday that week; regular schedule applies.)

The Library Café will be open from Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Café will not be open on Sunday.

“We are pleased that Greenwich students view the Library as their preferred study space and we make sure that they feel welcome,” said Barbara Ormerod-Glynn, Greenwich Library Director. “Offering extended hours during these critical weeks gives students much-needed additional time to prepare for their tests.”

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.
