Happy National Library Week and National Library Workers Day!

Happy National Library Workers Day, to our Barry Law Library faculty and staff!
This whole week is National Library Week. According to the American Library Association, “First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate.”

The Law Library will be closed Thursday – Sunday.

The Barry Law Library will be closed this Thursday (Holy Thursday), Friday (Good Friday), Saturday, and Easter Sunday, March 29th – April 1st.  There will be no classes on these days either.

Enjoy your long Easter weekend, and make the most of it, whether you catch up on studying, attend religious services, or spend time with family and friends.  Happy Easter AND Happy Passover!

As always, if you have a question, e-mail the Reference Librarians at LawReferenceLibrarians@barry.edu while it’s fresh in your head, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

We’re here all week (even though it’s Spring Break!)

Yes, we know it’s Spring Break (WOOOOOOOO!), but your Barry Law Library is open for all your research and studying needs!

Shoot us an e-mail at LawReferenceLibrarians@barry.edu or stop on by if you need any help researching your appellate briefs, Upper Level papers, or anything else you’re working on.

We’re here all week, folks! The Law Library is open from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM, from today through Friday the 9th, then back to normal hours.

Spring Break: Closed this weekend and limited hours next week

Well, you all made it through midterm exams, so next week is Spring Break! Woooooo! Whether you have an exciting adventure planned, you’re looking forward to a relaxing stay-cation at home, or you’ll use the week off to catch up or get ahead on work (you appellate brief writers!), your Law Library staff hopes you have a safe, fun time. And that goes for our wonderful faculty and staff too, not just our students!
The Barry Law Library will be CLOSED this weekend (Saturday March 3rd – Sunday March 4th), and open with limited hours next week: 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM on Monday March 5th – Friday March 9th. Your Reference Librarians will be on duty during that time, so definitely e-mail us or come on by if you need anything or just want a change of scenery. We should be even quieter than usual (since libraries are usually quiet), in case you want to schedule a Personal Research Consultation with us.
