Bird Library Entrance Adjustments During Mayfest
In order to maintain an environment conducive to study and to diminish the potential for disruption during and immediately following Mayfest 2014, the Syracuse University Libraries will extend implementation of its evening security protocol beginning on Friday, April 25.
Monitored access to Bird Library will occur exclusively through the Waverly Avenue entrance beginning at noon on Friday, April 25, until 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 26. Additionally, both Bird Library and Carnegie Library (including the Carnegie Library Reading Room) will be open to library users only during these times.
Libraries staff and officers from the Department of Public Safety will actively monitor the interior and exterior of Bird Library and Carnegie Library throughout Mayfest activities to ensure order and peace during this period, which coincides with the beginning of the University’s spring exam study period.
Bird Library and the Carnegie Library Reading Room will be open to members of the University community 24 hours a day from Friday, April 25, through Thursday, May 8. Both facilities will be open amended hours during Graduation Weekend.
