Dear Law Library,
I just heard the library will be closed over the long weekend. This will be a major issue for law students who very often use the law library to work on papers and assignments (and so need the law library's books) over the break, and many of us are also preparing to write deferred exams starting Tuesday. If the library must be closed it would have also been beneficial to advertise this so we could at least plan around it. No one seems to have known this before today.
Thank you for your email regarding the opening hours of the law library. It is encouraging to hear that you regard the library as critical to your studies and research.
When deciding our hours of opening, we take into account the previous years' library usage. The level of usage for the weekend leading up to the Family Day holiday was significantly lower than that of other weekends; it was determined, therefore, that the branch would not be open this Saturday and Sunday (as well as the holiday Monday). The law library is open for the remainder of the break. Branch library hours for February 21 to 26 are:
*Tuesday through Thursday: 8am to 8pm
*Friday: 8am to 5pm
*Saturday: 10am to 5pm
*Sunday: 12noon to 8pm
In addition, if you are interested in the library as a place to study this coming weekend (February 18th and 19th) there are two library branches open:
* The health sciences library will be open Saturday and Sunday from 12noon to 5pm
* The Murray library will be open Saturday from 10am to 9pm and Sunday from 10am to 11pm
The library posted the hours of opening on the website and on the doors into the law library, however, we recognize that we did not sufficiently communicate this change of hours. We apologize and will broaden our communication distribution in the future. If you have any suggestions regarding communication venues, we would love to hear them.
We have heard from you and other students about your frustration with our decision to close the library this weekend. We will approach the Law Students Association to ask if we could attend an upcoming meeting to discuss our hours with students so that we can make decisions going forward that are informed not simply by usage statistics but also from direct student input.

For many years, Allan Cushon was the owner of Saskatoon’s most recognizable locksmithing businesses, Burnett’s Key Shop. He was an avid collector with a keen eye for the unusual. Victorian trade cards, science fiction magazines, Canadiana, advertising ephemera, and all things Sherlockian are only a brief example of the types of items he gathered. Often, his collecting took a thematic bent, with his passion for locksmithing shining through in accumulations of lock-and-key oriented Valentine’s cards and locked-room mysteries. In honor of Valentine’s Day, we have gathered some of the best of these together, visually uniting love and locksmithing as they are so frequently joined by metaphor. We would like to invite you to engage with this collection -- to explore the complex imagery surrounding love, locks, and keys.

For Aboriginal people, storytelling is both a gift, and a very old custom, sanctioned by the people to teach, entertain, and remember.
