The end of the year brings a few hints of cooler weather, changing leaf colors, Native American Heritage Month, Thanksgiving, and other winter holidays. The federal government creates numerous sites with information about the holidays, including the Census Bureau’s Facts for Features on Thanksgiving, the CDC’s Food Safety Tips for Your Holiday Turkey, and Car Travel Safety Tips from Ready.gov.
As the days grow shorter, keep in mind upcoming schedule changes during the Thanksgiving break:
Odum Library will close at midnight Tuesday, November 21; reopen Wednesday, November 22, 8:00 a.m. through 5:30 p.m., close for Thursday and Friday, November 23 and 24, and reopen for regular hours Saturday, November 25, at 12:00 noon through the end of the semester.
Once VSU students return to classes on November 27, the days of the semester grow shorter as well. Classes end on Monday, December 4, and final exams end Friday, December 8, with graduation on Saturday, December 9. Odum Library closes for winter break at 3:00 p.m. Friday, December 15. The library reopens at 8:00 a.m. Tuesday, January 2, 2018, but it’ll be Monday, January 8, 2018, before students start classes again.
In the meantime, come by the government documents exhibit in the Odum Library Reference area to see a display of autumnal and winter government publications. Take care and enjoy your holidays!
