Kansas State University Hale Library to decrease hours after budget cuts - Timothy Everson, KState Collegian

Sitting in one of the alcoves outside Hale Library on Aug. 22, 2016, Jake Stegall, sophomore in English literature, works on his homework. Many students have counted on Hale’s late hours in the past, but that service will no longer be available since Hale will close at midnight at the latest starting this semester. Kansas State announced Friday that Hale Library will no longer be open 24 hours during the regular school year. The decrease in hours comes after university-wide budget cuts caused Hale to lose almost a million dollars in general funding over the past two years. The same cuts also contributed to the 5.8 percent increase to student tuition for the 2016 fiscal year. The cut in hours is expected to save Hale $110,000 annually.
