USF library back to 24 hours starting Sunday



Last week, when University of South Florida officials and students worked together to come up with a solution to the hot-button issue of library hours, all involved said they hoped to see the library open again all night within a week. Now, we have a date.

The USF library will return to being open 24 hours a day, five days a week starting Sunday. Here's a link to the library's official schedule.

Amid tight financial times, library hours were trimmed back. The move left students protesting, writing letters and signing a petition, and USF leaders pledged to find the money needed to keep the library open late. Read the story here.

Library hours couldn't be restored immediately at the time, as managers needed a few days to adequately restaff the building for the extended hours.
