Library Hours for Presidential Debate Week

By Michael Yunkin on September 28, 2016 3:14 PM | Permalink

On October 19th, the eyes of the world will be on the UNLV campus for the final presidential debate of the 2016 campaign. As a part of the overall campus planning for the event, the UNLV University Libraries will adjust its library hours and services minimally during debate week in order to minimize the impact on the UNLV community.

Library hours and services will only be reduced on the evenings of Tuesday, October 18, and Wednesday, October 19. The slightly reduced hours take into account anticipated impact on access to campus, temporary displacement of parking near the library, and the start time of the televised debate (6 p.m. Pacific Time).

All libraries on campus will observe regular hours and provide all services through Monday, October 17. Library hours are available online at:

On Tuesday, October 18, all UNLV University Libraries will open at their normal times. Only Lied Library will close early.  Specific library hours are:

In honor of the 25th anniversary of one of the longest modern day labor strikes in American history, the Culinary Workers Union, Local 226, and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas University Libraries are continuing work to preserve and document this important historical event.

On Sept. 21, 1991, 550 workers from five unions walked off their jobs at the Frontier Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada to protest unfair wages and treatment. The strike line was maintained 24/7 and not one striker ever crossed the line during that time. The Culinary Workers Union and four other locals - Bartenders 165, Teamsters 995, Operating Engineers 501, and Carpenters 1780 - organized the strike.
