What’s that? The NE Library is closing? Forever? Noooooooooo… What will I do for books? How will I study? Where will I take my afternoon nap?
Whoa. Hold your horses, buckaroo… Everything will be all right. Just keep reading.
The J. Ardis Bell Library at TCC-NE will be CLOSING EARLY at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 18, 2016. That is the start-time for the last final exams in this second Summer term, and – just like our students – we’re looking forward to the end of another semester. Now…
The NE Campus Library will also be CLOSED ALL DAY on Friday, August 19th for a Staff Development training day. The NE Copy Center will still be available for print-orders, faxes, and Student ID cards. To access this area, you may enter by the loading dock door on the east side of the library building.
The NE Library is not open on weekends during the summer months, so our doors will remain closed on Saturday & Sunday, the 20th and 21st. Due to another all-campus training session, the NE Library will also be CLOSED on the morning of Monday, August 22nd.
We will RE-OPEN at 1:00 p.m. on Monday afternoon, August 22nd. The library’s collection areas and the upstairs computer lab will be available that day until 5:00 p.m. Unfortunately, the Computer Learning Center lab will be closed and unavailable to students or community patrons on Monday afternoon.
Of course, our online catalog, e-book collection, and research databases are all available 24/7 from any internet-capable device, whether the library is open or not. All you need to do is visit library.tccd.edu, and log in with your current TCC credentials (WedAdvisor ID and Password).
The Northeast Library will be open on a REDUCED HOURS schedule (7:45 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) for Tuesday and Wednesday, August 23 & 24.
We will be CLOSED again for the entire day on Thursday, August 25th, as all Tarrant County College employees gather for a district-wide day of professional development and training.
Friday, August 26th will be another REDUCED HOURS day, when the library will be open from 7:45 a.m. – 5 p.m.
We will be CLOSED again from 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 2nd thru Monday, Sept. 5th, in observance of the Labor Day holiday weekend.
Otherwise, effective on Monday, August 29th, with the beginning of a new Fall semester, the NE Library will be returning to our normal business hours, with all services available from 7:45 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. on Monday thru Thursday. We will also be open to accommodate our Weekend College students from 7:45 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and on Sunday afternoons from 12:00 – 5:00 p.m.
So, what is the reason behind all of these closure dates? I’m so glad you asked. 🙂
Your friendly neighborhood Library Staff will be receiving all kinds of training and development to help serve you – our students and patrons – better than ever! The whole thing is about improving your overall library experience. YOU are the reason we’re here!
Enjoy the rest of your summer, and we’ll see you in the Library!
