      • *Please note that entry to library after the regular hours of closing (e.g. 11p.m. Sun-Thurs; 9 p.m. Fri-Sat), December 9 through 18, will require you to swipe your seminary ID through the card reader located to the left of the front door. You will not be able to enter without use of your card. Our security strategy prohibits service desk staff from opening the door for anyone arriving after regular hours of closing without seminary ID. During the hours of swipe card only access, the service desk operations will consist of checking in materials and receiving returns, including reserve books. During these extended hours, two reserve books may be checked out at 11 p.m. and must be returned by 9 a.m. the next day. Many thanks to the students working at the Service Desk. They make extended hours possible at this busy time of the semester.
