Dear Library Staff, The hours listed for Friday, December 11, were "close at 7pm" however, the usually closing announcement chimed at 5:40 saying that the library would close at 6pm. This was a very inconvenience mistake for me as I had incorporated this last hour into my planning out my last final project and counted on the use of the library to finish it on time. Now I will have to find another means to finish and email this project to my professor at the last minute. Exams week is not over yet and I feel that the library should extend its hours over this period, even on the weekends. In addition, because the hours were "wrong" on the website, I feel that the library should have stayed open at least another hour. Thank you for your time.

We do apologize for the miscommunication in the listing of Cabell Library hours for Friday, December 11. It is unfortunate that the hours listed on the website were incorrect, and the mistake was not noticed until late that afternoon. All other communication detailing the building hours during Library Lite All Nite, such as the signs posted on the doors, the telephone hours line, flyers and handouts, contained the correct information, that the building would be closed at 6 p.m. as usual. Thank you for taking the time to bring the matter to our attention.
