Library opening hours for the Ekka show holiday

It’s that time of year again – Ekka time!

Chilly, windy days; carnies flocking to town; and people doing their best to avoid a winter cold.

Starting next Monday, the round of Show holidays begins!

It’s time to brave the crowds, stock up on show bags, enjoy some rides, chow down some carnival food, and revel in the the fireworks. Or skip the Ekka all together and just enjoy a nice day off. Either or.

Monday 14 August is a public holiday for Logan campus. Wednesday 16 August is then a public holiday for all Brisbane campuses (we’re looking at you – Nathan, Mt Gravatt, and South Bank). And, all good things come to those who wait. So while it is a bit of a longer wait (soz), Friday 1 September it’s finally your turn Gold Coast!

Library opening hours have changed for the Show Holidays so be sure to check the library opening hours for your campus library.

Library hours for study and exam period

You’re almost there! Just a few more weeks and the trimester will be over. You can sleep in under your doona without the pressing urgency of attending lectures, working on assignments, or studying for exams.

But we’re not quite there yet.

Next week is study week, a week long break between teaching and end of trimester exam period to allow you to study for exams.

However, we get students will often want to use the library more than usual during Weeks 12, 13 & 14 to assist with study (into the early morning even – how do you do it! Young blood?).

Books, study spots, printers, vending machines in close proximity – we’ve got you.

So, for the next three weeks, Nathan and Gold Coast libraries will open 7am Monday, and remain open 24 hours until midnight on Fridays with extended weekend hours to accommodate this. 

  • Monday: 7am-12am (services open 8am – 7pm)
  • Tuesday – Friday: 24 hours (services open 8am – 7pm)
  • Saturday & Sunday: 9am – 10pm (services open 9am – 5pm)

Check out the opening hours for Logan, Mt Gravatt and South Bank campuses here.

And don’t forget to take a look at our handy information on exam prep during study week and on exam day, as well as tips to beat exam anxiety.

Library closed 26 January 2016

Tomorrow Griffith Libraries (across all campuses) will be closed for the Australia Day public holiday.

But don’t worry they say fresh air is good for the brain. So why not take the opportunity to get some sand between your toes, explore the Aussie bush or take your books to the backyard for an outdoor study sesh.

Remember, you can still access all your favourite online resources 24/7 on the Library website.

See you Wednesday, possibly sporting a slight tan!
