Late Night Library

The University Library at Ormskirk has run 2 phases of Late Night Library this academic year. We opened until midnight Mondays to Thursdays from 22nd November to the 16th December and again from the 7th March to the 14th April.

The late nights have proved popular, with 1187 using the Library, between 9pm and midnight, in the 4 week pre Christmas phase and 1723 in the 6 week run up to Easter.

For those of you who like statistics, the top footfall figure was the same for both phases. 127 people came in on both the 15th December and the 6th April.

We have received both written and verbal feedback which has been overwhelmingly positive. We had some great comments left on the postcards available on the helpdesks, ranging from ‘We need it’ to ‘I am writing this at 11.45pm and I love it’ and our particular favourite I love the library…it is the best!

We also had many requests for us to offer late nights during the exam weeks in May. As a result of this Late Night Library will run again from the 9th May to the 19th May, Monday to Thursday.

All the statistics we recorded and feedback we received will inform the decision about Late Night Library for the academic year 2011-2012.

Please continue to let us know what you think by e-mailing us at lsdesk@edgehill.ac.uk
