Spring Break Library Hours

Published on 25 March, 2021

We've made it to Spring Break during another unprecedented semester at CSN! Our libraries continue to be open, but will have limited hours March 29-April 2. That week all campus libraries will be open:

Monday-Friday from 10am-2pm

with online chat available from 10am-2pm as well. Then Monday, April 5 our regular semester hours will resume.

Don't forget that even during Spring Break, we will have our traditional health and safety measures for when you come to campus:

Mask When You Ask

Once you arrive on campus you will be required to wear a mask. So before you even get to the library you’ll want to put it on. This is a policy across CSN and the state, for the health of our community in public spaces. It also allows the library to stay open to provide what you need! It’s especially important that you mask up when speaking with our library staff, who will also be wearing them. If you enter the library without a mask you will be given one.

Sanitation Stations

Each campus library has sanitation locations when you first enter the library space, so you can sanitize your hands upon entering. We also have increased cleaning protocols in place where custodial staff will be regularly cleaning high-contact areas such as door handles. We encourage good hygiene throughout your time at a CSN library. If you’re planning to stay longer than a few minutes, you’ll want to wash or sanitize your hands often. If you used a computer station, we ask that you wipe down any surfaces you touched with the disinfectant wipes at our sanitation stations before you leave. Copy machines will be cleaned by staff, but you'll want to sanitize your hands before and after use.

Musical Chairs

You might notice some of our chairs have been removed or that our tables are set up differently. We ask that you observe all policies and signage posted, such as one person per table and using only designated computers. Please leave all furniture pieces where they are since they have been configured to ensure optimal social distancing. Our biggest furniture change is the installation of plexiglass at all library desks to help prevent the spread of air droplets between students and staff.

Don't forget, if you aren't able to come to campus, we will have our virtual reference available during Spring Break from 10am-2pm as well. Get your questions answered through online chat to find you the help you need!
