UI Main Library revises hours, increases monitoring for COVID-19 safety violations


In response to student requests, the University of Iowa has revised its hours at the Main Library and will step up enforcement of COVID-19 safety violations there.

The Main Library’s Learning Commons and second and third floors are now open from 7:30am to 10pm Monday through Friday. The Learning Commons is also open on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 5pm.

In response to student feedback, UI Libraries is partnering with the Office of Student Accountability on a program to monitor and encourage the use of face coverings in library facilities.
