Just in time for midterms and finals, the Pollak Library has announced that it will be open Sundays, beginning March 24, to better serve students and the campus community.
The library has not offered Sunday hours since 2009 as part of a cost-savings move, according to University Librarian Richard Pollard. The passage of Prop 30 and requests by students to reopen the library were the reasons for the change.
"It is important Sunday hours be restored at the Pollak Library so that the campus community can have access to only-available-in-print resources and to face-to-face services, as well as to have a quiet place to study," Pollard said.
The circulation, Titan Card and the information and learning commons desks will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays. The reference and research services desk will be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The Pollak Library serves more than 34,000 students and 2,100 full- and part-time faculty members. Established in 1959, it was officially renamed the the Paulina June and George Pollak Library in 1998, in recognition of a $1 million donation received from the emeritus professor of English and Comparative Literature and her husband.
