Hello, 2Ls and 3Ls!
As you prepare for another year at CharlotteLaw, you may be wondering: What will be new and exciting in the library? Read on for the Three Things You Need to Know:
- New quiet area – So long, slamming doors! Nevermore, noisy study rooms! The quiet area has been moved to the opposite side of the library—the side facing Suttle Avenue. All the seats around the Treatises collection and the Regional Reporters collection are part of this area. Signs are in place as reminders.
- Library hours – To help your planning for the fall semester, we have posted the library hours through the end of the year.
- Overdue fines – Isn’t it frustrating to go to the circulation desk, ask for a book, and discover it is already checked out? Imagine the extra frustration if you knew the book had been kept past its due date! To discourage this, the library has adopted a system of overdue fines, effective August 1. Go to here to read the policy.
The building will be closed on July 3rd and 4th to all employees & students.
ID badges will not work.
