New York, NY - March 13, 2007-- The Newman Library will once again be open for Baruch students 24 hours a day during the midterm exam period. 

“An important part of the library’s mission is to support the academic work of students,” says Jerry Bornstein, Deputy Chief Librarian for Public Services.  “We’re happy to make the library available around the clock during midterms.”

Monday, March 19th the library will open as usual at 7:00 am and remain open continuously until 11:59pm  Sunday, March 25th. Only Baruch students with valid school identification will be allowed to stay in the library between the hours of 12 Midnight and 7 AM. 

The library has 1,450 seats available for students and, during finals, every one is at a premium.  In order to ensure that the extended hours run smoothly, everyone needs to cooperate with library policy and extend courtesy to others.  “One of the things we need students to do,” says Bornstein, “is turn off cell phones and observe the ‘no food’ rule.”  As always, students are asked to go out to the lobby or telephone rooms to use cell phones.
