Hi Shuana. Thanks for your question. The library and Student Government Association are collecting data and feedback throughout the autumn quarter on the extended late night hours and will assess pilot project after the quarter is over. So, basically I'm not sure yet but if you like, I can forward your question to the library administration. Feel free to email me directly and I can connect you.
