FALL 2020: No Sunday hours.
Under normal conditions, we are open Sundays from 1pm to 6pm, 2nd floor only. All other floors are locked. Also, there are no library services on Sundays, including checking out of materials.
FALL 2020: You may ask at the 2nd floor checkout desk for quick printing help. Or, you can contact CIT if you need more assistance with printing questions.
There could be many reasons for this. Go to the Research Desk for help. If no one is there, you can find handouts there that explain how to fix the problem on your own.
FALL 2020: With limited access within the library building, new non-theological books will not be shelved in their own location. Please ask at the main checkout desk (2nd floor, phone: 616-526-7197) if you have any questions about where to find new books.
New books for the university are normally displayed on the 3rd floor against the east wall. New books for the seminary are on the 4th floor outside of the Meeter Center.
FALL 2020: Peet's Coffee will be open when the library is open, but only for "grab 'n go." There will be no seating in the area. All safety precautions apply: social distancing and masks.
Peet's Coffee's normal hours: Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., Friday 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and closed on Sunday. These hours are subject to change, however.
FALL 2020: There will be no librarians (or student research consultants) at Research Desk. We will provide reference and research help exclusively online through our live chat from the library homepage, text (616-214-3355), by email and by appointment.
Librarians staff the Research Desk in the afternoons from 1:00pm to 4:30pm on Monday through Thursday, and from 1:00pm to 3:00pm on Fridays. At other times, our Library Research Consultants are available to help with your research process. For more information, see our desk schedule.
