PARALLAX Break: In the year ahead
In the year ahead …

In the year ahead, the UCLA Library seeks to address the growing need for more study space for students. Philanthropy will pave the way for the expansion of the Night Powell study room, a space currently available all hours only during tenth and finals week, with the long-term goal of keeping the entire Powell Library open 24 hours a day, five days a week.

Private philanthropy will help us achieve this goal.
