Night Library Will Open on 21 May


On 21 May, the UT Library will open its traditional Night Library. In addition to regular opening hours, during the next three weeks, from Monday to Thursday, the students can study in the library for three more hours; the library is open from 10.00 until 24.00.

 “We are really happy to be again able to welcome students in our own building,” said Martin Hallik, the Director of the UT Library. Due to the renovation, the Night Library was for three times held at the pop-up reading rooms on J. Liivi and Veski Street. Now people can again study in the main building of the library on W. Struve Street. “On the Night Library days we will give a couple of seminar rooms of the Conference Centre also at the disposal of the students, so that everybody who would like to prepare for the exams or write their final theses in the library can definitely do it here.” 

Within the next three weeks the library will offer the students the opportunity to study until late night hours. The library will treat the students with free coffee at the café Gaudeamus, which is open until 11.00 on these days. The café will also have a special night menu. 

Reading dogs will visit the library on Monday evenings. “The Estonian Association of Assistance and Therapy Dogs has been our cooperation partner already for years and reading dogs have become an inseparable part of the night library,” said Olga Einasto, the Head of the Service Department. “We are back in our own house, we offer a quiet learning environment to the students and try to help to minimise their stress during the period of exams.”

The books of the reading room collections are available for the students by pre-order via the e-catalogue ESTER.

The Night Library is open on 21-24 May, 28-31 May and 04-07 June, from 10.00-24.00.
