Snow Closing Library’s Public Spaces Today at 3:30

In accordance with the Office of Personnel Management’s directive closing the federal government two hours early today, the Library will close all public spaces (exhibits, etc.) and reading rooms at 3:30 p.m. (As Congress is in session, the La Follette Congressional Reading Room will be open.  The Law Library Reading Room will also be open pursuant to 2 U.S.C. 138.)

Employees who reported to work should be dismissed two hours earlier than their normal departure time from work.   The two-hour early dismissal does not apply to emergency employees or employees who are teleworking today.
