Independence Day is for Fireworks and Fun! (Just Not in the Library)

You might have your fireworks, charcoal grill, food, and beverages all lined up for the Fourth of July, but what about a nice patriotic read? The Morris Law Library has quite a few works about the document that started it all, the Declaration of Independence. If you find something of interest there, you'll need to check it out in advance as we’ll be closed on Monday, the Fourth of July.

If you're one who is foregoing burgers and pyrotechnics to study for the bar exam, this closure may be particularly bad news. We'll try to make it up to you by keeping extended hours during the two weekends before the exam: on Friday through Sunday, July 15-17* and 22-24, we'll be opening 8:00 a.m. (10:00 a.m. on Sundays) and closing at 10:00 p.m..

[*You'll want to note that air conditioning on the second and third floors will be off on July 16 and 17. Extra study spaces in cooler areas of the building will be opened for those days. Look around the library for notices about their locations.]

Happy Fourth!
