BiblioTemps News

Is your library open 24 hours a day?

The temperature has dropped, pumpkin spice coffee is back, and school is in full swing. It may feel like summer just ended but before we know it, winter will be upon us. That means that libraries are now filled with hard working students looking for research materials and studying for tests. To make that task easier, Westfield State University opens its doors 24 hours a day at the Ely Library during finals week every semester. Students can access their resources at all hours of the day and night to ensure they are prepared for exams and can complete their essay papers. To do this, they hire BiblioTemps® Every winter and spring, we provide an Overnight Circulation Desk Attendant who keeps the library open from midnight to 8:00 am. We are happy to have helped keep Ely Library accessible to students during that critical study period since 2013!

Here’s what they say about our services, “At the end of both the fall and spring semester, we are open 24 hours.  We need a librarian to work at our Circulation desk between midnight and 8 a.m. for those days.  We have used BiblioTemps® for this purpose for years. Highly satisfied.”

BiblioTemps®  can provide temporary or permanent staff for all your patron needs, including SAT and MCAS testing periods, essay or dissertation season or during semester exams. For more information about how to hire BiblioTemps® to help the students in your area, call or email Shelah Coullard at 508-357-2121 ext. 322 today!
