today i went to the gladstone library to pick up a hold, and was greeted with a locked door. according to the hours posted on the front window, the library not only didn’t open until 1:30 pm, but those sunday hours were "seasonal." walking away from the library empty-handed, i wondered what exactly constituted "seasonal" hours for a library. obviously, for an on-campus library, it would make sense if seasonal meant that it wasn’t open on sundays in the summer, but this was just a plain old public library — would the same rules apply? were those even the rules? this wasn’t as obvious case as, say, an ice cream shop. anyway, i came back a little after 1:30 and it was open. something to keep an eye on going forward, i guess. maybe i'll look it up.
