Gelman Library shortened its hours for the upcoming semester, according to a University posting in the library on Tuesday.
From August 31 until Dec. 6, the library will be open 24 hours a day on Mondays through Thursdays, will close at 11 p.m. on Fridays, open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and reopen Sundays at noon. Previously, the library was open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The schedule was also posted on Gelman Library’s website.
Last year the library’s budget increased for the first time in more than a decade. The University plans to dedicate $35 million of its $1 billion fundraising campaign to the library.
Students took to Twitter to react to the change:

@gelmanlibrary I thought what we had was special. I loved staying in and being up with you all night. Did last year mean nothing to you?

@gelmanlibrary The times I study are late Friday and Saturday nights since I spend most days in class or working. Losing 24hrs is not okay.
