Open Library @ UC Irvine

from the facebook event:

Need a place to study? Need a place to sleep?

Study-in/sleepover at Langson Library

MEET AT 4:00PM FRIDAY – MAIN LOBBY (INSIDE)
GENERAL ASSEMBLY 8:00PM FRIDAY – MAIN LOBBY

During the last budget cuts, Library funding was cut disproportionately to other units. And next year, the libraries will likely be cut further. As a result, our libraries are open less than at most comparable schools around the country. We need our libraries to be open more. We need access to books, we need places to study and work. Our administrators CHOSE to cut library funding, they know we want more, yet they are ignoring us.

Help keep your library open! Come for a night of:
teach-ins, workshops, tutoring, study groups, videos, TA and professor office hours, food, games, and a midnight dance party!!

Bring a sleeping bag or blanket, books, games, food to share, and your friends! You don’t need permission to use your library–plan your own activities!

UCI belongs to us, let’s take it back!
