Note: Library hours are subject to change based on staff availability and/or evolving public health guidelines. Any changes to library programs and services will be provided in future updates and will be shared via the Libraries website, Library News, Social Media, and west today. Western Libraries’ current schedule reflects our intention to ensure continuity of services despite the impacts on staff caused by the ongoing pandemic. By concentrating library staff during normal business hours, replacement staff can be more easily secured at the point of need, allowing us to provide adequate coverage to staff who are unexpectedly unable to work because they are sick, in quarantine or caring for the sick. family members.

In agreement with Western Washington University Health and Safety Requirements, all individuals must be masked at all times while indoors. This includes interiors of library facilities, other interior public spaces on Western campus, and WWU transportation.
