Need a place to study? Here are all the libraries’ hours for reading week

Tired of battling your fellow classmates for seats in Butler? Dorm room starting to feel claustrophobic? Hit the books this finals season in one of Columbia’s (many) libraries.

To accommodate for your all-nighter cram sessions, many libraries have extended their hours over the next couple weeks. All hours listed below begin during reading week and last through finals, unless otherwise specified. Take note of these  hours and get ready to ace those finals.

(And if you’re feeling overwhelmed by all of your library options, find out which one of these saucy study spots is best for you here.)

With plenty of options, you’ll never be starving for open study spaces. Now, the only thing you have to decide is whether you actually want to pull yourself out of bed to hit up one of these spaces.

Find any new study spaces? Send them to us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Snapchat @CUSpectrum.
