Return to 24/5 operation

24/5 Hours

Dear colleagues and students,

I am delighted to tell you that the Belk Library & Information Commons will return to 24/5 operation, Sundays through Thursdays, starting on March 16, 2014.  Provost Gonzalez and Chancellor Peacock were very eager to make this happen. I appreciate their encouragement and also wish to thank Appalachian State students for considering the Library so important to their success.  

Please note:

  • The University will not be charging any additional fees to students for these extended hours.
  • Between 2:00 am and 7:30 am, a valid AppCard will be required to enter or stay in the building.  Patrons should be mindful of security and not prop or hold doors for others.
  • 24/5 will run during Fall and Spring semesters.
  • We will also increase hours on Fridays and Saturdays.  See the library hours calendar for the full schedule.

Some services will be limited during very late night hours:

  • All desk and reference services will be closed from 2:00 am - 7:30 am.  
  • Self-checkout will remain open for books.
  • Laptops will be due at 1:00 am so that we can update them.
  • The fourth floor will continue to close at 10:00 pm.

I tried to use the 24/5 hours for the first time this morning, and had to wait to be let into the building. Apparently, there is a card swipe for the appcard next to one of the doors, but there was no signage and I don't remember seeing that information anywhere. That might be a useful piece of information for students (where the card swipe is, etc.)

Thank you for the suggestion.  The AppCard readers are located to the right of both the front and rear entrances.
