Finals Briefs: Alden Library and Donkey Coffee and Espresso will be open all day and night for finals week


Alden Library Second Floor Learning Commons

The second floor Learning Commons will be open all night long for Ohio University students, which is not much of a change for most. “Every other floor has extended hours but it’s pretty much the same for the second floor,” Dashaun Slaughter, a sophomore studying computer engineering and an employee at the library, said.

Donkey Coffee and Espresso

The coffee house will stay open 24 hours until Thursday, when it will close at normal hours at 12:30 a.m. “The owner opened Donkey right out of college and knew the struggles of finding a place to do your all-nighters,” Kirsten Kueser, a senior studying journalism, said. Kueser is a barista at Donkey Coffee and Espresso.

Extended Hours

The 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th floors of Alden Library will be open an extra two hours each night through Friday at 2 a.m.
