Subject: Fondren Library hours

I just wanted to reach out to share Fondren Library’s plans for the weekend.

We plan to have the library open, with minimal staffing, both Saturday and Sunday from 12pm (noon) through 6pm.

Since we will have very few library staff coming to campus, entry will be to Rice ID holders only, and through the West (Pavilion) entrance only. We won’t have adequate staff to open the East (Academic Quad) entrance. Faculty, students, and staff will need to bring their IDs to enter through the card readers.

As Hurricane Harvey bumbles about, we will be monitoring developments and updating for library hours next week: through email, our website, Facebook, and Twitter.
