Best wishes for a harmonious holiday season, and a prosperous 2014!  

If you are planning to visit the Schiro Reading Room, our current hours are Monday-Friday 10:00-5:00, and Saturday 9:00-1:00.    On Friday, December 6, the reading room will close at 4:00 to allow the staff to attend a library event.

Special Collections will be closed December 21, 2013, through January 1, 2014, for the holidays and winter recess.    The reading room will resume its current schedule on January 2, 2014.

It is a good idea to check the hours information and exceptions on the LaRC website, before planning a visit.  Also, because of multiple construction projects on campus, parking is very problematic these days.  You may take public transportation, try to find a legal spot in the neighborhood and walk in, or see Tulane University's general parking information online.
