The Christoph Keller, Jr. Library building is closed.

The library's physical collections are not available to patrons, as GTS transitions to future uses of this space. 


Category Archives: Superstorm


Due to the weather, the Keller Library will close at 6 p.m. today (Friday, February 8).  The Library will be closed all day on Saturday February 9. On Sunday, February 10, the library will be open its normal hours 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.

 Our intention is to keep the Library open for the use of people who live on campus as much as possible.  Since the serious storm is predicted to come in in the evening, we will close at 6 instead of 8 pm.  Snow accumulation and leftover storm activity are likely to make access to the library difficult on Saturday until the snow is cleared, so we will not open on Saturday.  Sunday should be back to normal.  And, of course, all of you will be in the Library on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. for our e-books orientation.
Library resources, including online journals and e-books, continue to be available at
Have a safe and enjoyable weekend.

Drew and the Library Staff
