Student study in a study cubicle in the library

During the partial opening of the university due to COVID 19, our hours have changed.

Library hours for in-person visits are:
Monday-Thursday: 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Closed Saturday-Sunday
*Building capacity will not exceed 25% at any time.

Available services: Patrons have access to computers, printers, limited study tables and study room (limited to one person at a time). If a patron wants to look at or check out a book from the circulating collection, they can let library staff at the circulating desk know the title needed so they can retrieve the book for them. Curbside services are also available during the library’s open hours. For curbside service, call (432) 552-2370 or email

Falcon Chat is available during the times the library is open.

Online library resources are available 24/7 (with Falcon ID and password). Library Instruction for classes are made available online via Canvas or Microsoft Teams.

Library emails and phones are monitored remotely during the hours we are closed. Messages will be responded to in a timely manner.
