Some areas of the Main Library are now open 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday and 12pm to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. These areas include main-floor access to Circulation as well as our study and computing space on 1 East with access to MSU printing. As of Feb. 1st, we opened 1 West. Our total capacity at this time is 120 people. We also now have touchless lockers, where you may pick up materials. Outside of safety, our top priority is to provide access to all of our collections. We continue to offer virtual services. We also are paging materials and will continue to mail materials to faculty, staff, and students living off-campus. We encourage you to use our convenient distance services. Please see our Online and Distance Learning resource page for more information.

MSU/Lansing Area 3D PPE Makers Network

As of Aug. 1, 2020, after more than 4 months of near-constant printing and sewing, our machines on campus (and yours at home) have officially shut down for this effort.

We cannot thank each and every one of you enough! Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine we’d make over 2,300 cloth masks and make & deliver over 12,000 face shields all across the state to help essential workers stay safe and healthy. We all came together and made something amazing happen!

Once again — thank you, so much, for all your hard work. Spartans will — and always do — rise to the occasion when we’re needed most, and this was no exception.
