Q. I love this library, and I was just wondering why it’s not open later? On weekends, for instance, it seems like there are a fair amount of students there around 5pm, who would gladly study well into the evening.
Thanks very much for your comments and suggestion. We’d also love to have the Belzberg Library open later, but this would require an increase in our budget to staff the library. We’ve tried to maximize hours during the week when classes are in session, although we do recognize that many students like to study on the weekends. Until we are able to expand library hours, you are welcome to study in other areas of the Vancouver campus – the Harbour Centre building is open until 6:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and I will forward your suggestion to SFU Vancouver administrators to consider whether there is a way to extend this.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at email@example.com or 778-782-5054 if you would like to discuss this further.
Head, Belzberg Library
