Hilda’s library closes the night before Classics mods

first_imgSt Hilda’s library closed three hours early on Sunday evening, with students only informed of the move that afternoon. The college made the announcement in a brief email, “Due to circumstances beyond our control, the college library will need to close this evening (Sunday 2nd March) at 10 p.m.” This is several hours early than the usual closing time of 1am.The email, sent at 2:47 pm and signed by Maria Croghan (Hilda’s librarian), added that the move was made “with sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused”. There is a strong possibility that those with exams will have had to make significant changes to their final preparations. Some classicists have voiced their discontent at the measures.One second year at another college noted, “Realistically it’s only an inconvenience for the vast majority of the student body, but if you have to take some of the hardest exams in the world the next day, you really want to avoid any disturbances at all”.The exact cause of the library’s closure is not known at this point, the full details of why the library was forced to shut are expected to emerge in the near future.last_img read more
