​Kansas State Cuts Library Hours, Staff and Subscriptions

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Routine all night-access to Kansas State University's Hale Library has ended, with the building closing at midnight most nights to save money. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Kansas State said in an email that its libraries lost nearly $1 million over the past two years from a drop in general funds and lower enrollment. The email says the funding reductions come at a time when costs are rising. Scaling back hours will save $110,000 annually, largely by paring back security and custodial needs. The library also is making staffing and subscription cuts. A notable exception to the new hours for Hale will be during finals season. Round-the-clock hours are planned for the week of and the week before exams.
