Duke University Library Hours to Change

The libraries at Duke University have announced a change in hours for non-Duke users. From the Duke University Libraries website:

Most Duke University Libraries are open to the general public during certain posted hours. Beginning January 23, members of the public are welcome to visit and use the Libraries according to the following schedule:

  • Monday-Friday: 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
  • Sunday: 10 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Outside of these hours, all library entrances will be card-access only. This applies to Perkins, Bostock, and Rubenstein Libraries on West Campus, and to Lilly and Music libraries on East Campus.

Please note that library hours for Duke University students, faculty, staff, and other Duke-affiliated visitors remain the same. For more information about library hours of operation, please see the  Duke Libraries website.

New Card-Access Entry Points
In addition to the revised schedule above, the double doors to Perkins and Bostock libraries beneath the Perkins/Bostock connector will be card-access only 24 hours a day beginning January 23.

To use these building entrances, library users will need to swipe their Duke ID card or Duke Alumni Card. Individuals without a Duke ID card or Duke Alumni Card are asked to enter through either of the main library entrances on the Academic Quad.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Duke University Libraries reserve the right to deny access to any person whose conduct is disturbing to others or detracts from the research, scholarship, and study environment of the Libraries.

For questions about these policies, please contact Duke University Libraries.
