Today's building hours:

The Social Science, Humanities, and Education Library is located on the main floor in the former Alger Press Building at 61 Charles St. There is a mixture of soft seating, open study space, and study carrels. We have two group study rooms (for 1 to 2 people), and a silent study room that fits up to 14 people. 

Our hours change during the summer semester, exam period, and around the holiday break. We also have lots of items you can borrow besides books, including laptops, mice, podcast kits, stationery, and more!
