In addition to it being Alumnae Weekend on campus, since exams are approaching, McCain Library’s first weekend of extra service and study hours is happening. Because Alumnae Weekend fell late on the calendar, there will be a mix of current students and former ones in the building. Thanks in advance for your understanding and coexistence, particularly during the times that the Library Terrace is in use for private alumnae dinners.
Students may want to find a study spot on the upper floors of McCain on Friday and Saturday evenings. We also invite you to take a study break and come look at the note cards debuting for sale at Circulation. There are 3 cards with archival images and 4 of McCain Library. All proceeds support library resources for students.
Hours April 25-27
Friday 8:00am – 2:00am*
Saturday 9:00am – 2:00am*
Sunday 1:00pm – 2:00am*
*All library services available until 10:30pm; study only 10:30pm-2:00am. Ground Floor 24/7 spaces available after 2:00am.
Next weekend there will be a slightly different batch of extra library service hours.

Christina Kaylor, a blogger for “Readers Unbound,” grew up near the Agnes Scott College campus.
For National Poetry Month, she chose to take a “field trip” here to research and highlight the history of Robert Frost’s many visits to Decatur. Her well-crafted post captures his essence and some of the unusual artifacts related to him that are housed at ASC and in McCain Library:
