Poster of Claire T. Carney Library and Open 24 HoursThe Claire T. Carney Library is happy to open its doors to the UMassD community for 24/7 hours starting on the night of April 26 (Sunday) until May 13 (Tuesday) when we will close at 10PM.  Library services for Circulation/Reserves, the Digital Media Center, and Reference will not have extended hours, so make sure to visit those service points during regular hours.  You will also need a UMass Pass to enter the building after 10PM.

We hope you will find a variety of study spaces to choose from including our quiet study areas in the South Reading Room and Grand Reading Room (when no events are scheduled), several group study rooms available by reservation, and many individual and group study areas throughout the building.

We also encourage everyone to be respectful of the space and other students by watching noise levels and picking up after yourselves should you bring any food/drink.

The Campus Transportation Department will be providing Shuttle Service in a continuous loop to and from the library from April 27 – May 8.  You may also choose the Flex Parking program which will offer all Residential and Commuter students with cars the option of parking in lots 13, 14 and 15 from 6pm to 6am during this time frame.  Starting May 9th – May 13th “Safe Ride Shuttle Service” will be provided by calling and arrange a pick up at the Library between the hours of 2am and 7am (Transportation Dispatcher 508-999-9175).
