To start the new year off with a clean slate, and in the grand Christian tradition of Jubilee,* the Cushing Library is declaring a FINE AMNESTY EVENT. The Library will be waiving all outstanding fines for items RETURNED BEFORE TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011 (1/11/11).

If you have items that are overdue or will be overdue soon, return these items BEFORE January 11, 2011, do NOT pay the fines, and on January 11, your fines will be wiped out. We reopened January 4. You may also return books in our bookdrop, in the wall across from Hester.

If you currently have outstanding fines for overdue items you have already returned, do nothing, and the fines will be waived on January 11, 2011.

Please note that items returned ON OR AFTER January 11, 2011 will accrue fines. Additionally, we will not be making refunds for fines paid now or in the past. This is a one-time-good-deal.  Jubilee only comes around every 25 or 50 years, so return those books!

* No pilgrimage required, except to the library.


Through Tuesday, January 11, we are open 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekdays; 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Saturday January 8; and closed Sunday January 9.


Thanks to the university’s generosity, we are able to offer longer hours this spring! Here is our schedule, effective Wednesday, January 12:

  • Monday through Thursday: 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Friday: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Saturday: 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Sunday: 1 p.m. – 7 p.m.

The library is food-friendly, and we have wifi, power outlets, desks, iMacs, a scanner, copiers, and more. Research librarians are on duty most afternoons, evenings, and Saturdays to help you with your research needs. You can also get research assistance by email, phone, or chat. See our site:
