PALMER Reporter “Well, what do you do when you get off your date at midnight, your roommate is sleeping and you need to study for a German exam?” asks Holly Belt, a Texas A&M senior. Beginning Oct. 6, A&M students can study at the Sterling G. Evans Li brary until 2 a.m., says Evelyn King, assistant director for collection inter pretation at the library. The library, usually open until midnight during the week, extended its hours last fall on a trial basis. The Student Government re quested extended hours in response to student needs, King says. “After we agreed to extend library hours, we hatl to find the money in our budget,” King says. “We laid people off, froze posi tions and cut down on services. That’s when the Student Govern ment decided to fund the project.” Sean Royal), student body presi dent, says students needed the extra hours during heavy test periods. Through student service fees Stu dent Government was able to fund the extended hours for the trial pe riod. During that period the library was open until 3 a.m. during the week and until midnight on the weekends. Students responded positively during the trial period, Royall says. Garrie Lamm, a senior accounting major, says, “I think the extended hours Vvere very helpf ul. This sum mer I really suffered without the ex tra library hours.” Belt says, “During the week I wouldn’t start studying until 10 or 11 p.m., so I can get a lot done if the library is open late.” The library counted the number of people leaving at the later hours, Royall says, and found a substantial number of students were using the extended hours. King says, “We realized the stu dents were using the library so we compromised. We extended the hours but we weren’t open as late and we didn’t open as early as in the testing peri od.” Beginning the week before mid terms the library will be open until 2 a.m. during the week and until mid night on the weekends, King says. On Dec. 20 the library will be open 24 hours. The extended schedule begins the week before midterm because it would be a waste of time to have ex tended hours right now, King says. Last year, many students and fac ulty criticized the library for using student funds. “I agree,” King says, “the library should fund it’s own services.” This year the extended hours are included in the library budget, she says. “The students wanted this badly enough,” King says, “and we feel the extended hours are justified.” Last year, at the request of grad uate students and faculty, the library added hours at times of the year when regular classes do not meet. King says. 260-9'ii H ilver, imonds Repair ck of ids ains Around town Who's Who applications now available Applications for Who’s Who Among Students in American tlui- versmes and Colleges will be available at boxes located at eight dif ferent campus locations from 8 a.m. today through 5 p.m. Sept. 27.
