Library Weathers the Cold and Snow

Library Weathers the Cold and Snow

This has caused numerous schools, colleges, and universities to cancel classes and close offices. MSU is no exception. In Greene County and beyond, rolling power outages and frozen pipes have been common. Texas has been especially hard hit. 

Monday was a University holiday, but on Tuesday and Wednesday the MSU Libraries was able to offer limited hours — 1:00 to 5:00 each afternoon — and limited services, provided by members of the inclement weather team, who volunteer each fall to serve in these types of situations, should they arise.  If you are reading this on Thursday, February 18th, please know that Meyer Library will be open again Thursday afternoon from 1:00 to 5:00. 

Scores of intrepid users of the Meyer Library facilities, services, and collections were both pleased and thankful that the library was able to be open on a limited basis. Of course, the main lobby of Meyer Library always is available to members of the university community via their BearPass card. 

Facilities Management has been busy, too. Crews have done an excellent job of keeping walkways to and from Meyer Library shoveled and treated with ice melt. One pipe in Meyer Library froze, and maintenance and repair crews responded quickly to assess the problem and work on a solution. We are very grateful for their service and support.
