Pattee, Paterno Libraries Extending Hours Beginning August 31

Penn State’s Pattee and Paterno Libraries will expand their hours starting this week, the university announced this weekend.

Starting Monday, August 31, the libraries will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday. They’ll close at 5 p.m. on Fridays.

They’ll remain closed on weekends for the time being. Additionally, the libraries will close at 7 p.m. on Labor Day, Monday, September 7.

The revised closing time is a two-hour increase from the previous week. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the libraries were closed until August 24, when they reopened under a revised schedule.

Additionally, the Starbucks in the Paterno Library will resume full service beginning on September 1.

Starbucks will be open each Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and will close at 5 p.m. on Fridays. Like the Pattee Library, it will be closed on weekends. You can also order Starbucks through Penn State Eats, a mobile ordering service, until 11 a.m. each weekday.

Coronavirus mitigation measures still remain in place at university libraries. Group study rooms are for individual use only, the Stacks are closed to all students, and guests are expected to follow social distancing guidelines and wear masks at all times.
