Welcome to Musselman Library at Gettysburg College, your home away from your dorm room!  As you get acquainted with campus, here are a few things to note about the college library:


During orientation week, Musselman Library is open weekdays, 8:00a.m.-4:30p.m. and 12:00-6:00p.m. on the weekend.  Once classes start on August 26 the library will be open 8:00a.m.-11:00p.m. during the week (closing at 8p.m. on Friday nights), 10:00a.m.-8:00p.m. Saturday, and open 10:00a.m.-11:00p.m. on Sunday.  We begin our round-the-clock hours on Sunday, September 8.  You can also check the library’s hours on our website anytime.

CYC Library Event

During the first week of classes all first year students will need to complete the library’s CYC event. This fun, interactive activity can be completed Tuesday, August 27, Wednesday, August 28, or Thursday, August 29 during the hours of 1:00-5:00p.m. This is a required CYC activity, and there are no make-up dates, so be sure to stop by and during the dates/times above to get credit.  In addition to your CYC credit, you will also receive prizes for your participation!
