Western Libraries Hours Update

Beginning January 11, 2022, Western Libraries building hours are Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and closed weekends. These hours will be in place until Western resumes in-person classes. The Wilson north doors will remain open as long as staffing allows. If the north doors are closed, access to the library will remain via the Haggard entrance.

Programs and services provided by the Tutoring Center and Hacherl Research & Writing Studio are available online and in person by arrangement.  Western Libraries recognizes that many students benefit most from an in-person teaching and learning environment, and we invite students to contact the Tutoring Center or the Hacherl Research & Writing Studio to schedule in person appointments. 

Both the Tutoring Center and the Hacherl Research & Writing Studio will be open online during the hours listed below:

  • Monday - Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 pm
  • Friday - 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Saturdays - closed
  • Sundays -5 p.m. to 9 p.m.


The library buildings in Wilson and Haggard will also be open on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 17, 2022, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Tutoring Center and the Hacherl Research & Writing Studio will be open online from 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and closed the preceding Sunday (January 16).  

Access to Special Collections (Wilson 6th floor) as well as the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies and University Archives and Records Management  (both located in the Goltz-Murray Archives Building), is available by appointment.

Please note: At this time, the Libraries’ hours are as described above; however, these plans are subject to change pending the evolving public health guidance, new protocols and guidance, and/or staff availability. Any changes to library programs and services for winter quarter will be provided in future updates and will be shared via the Libraries’ website, Library News, social media, and Western Today.

In keeping with Western Washington University’s health and safety requirements, all individuals must be masked at all times when indoors. This includes when inside library facilities, other indoor public spaces on Western's campus, and WWU transportation.
