If you're coming to the library after 9 p.m., you'll need your Carolina Card.


Bring your Carolina Card if you want to study in the library at night this semester.

We're always glad to see you, but anyone entering Thomas Cooper Library in the evenings must be a current USC student, faculty or staff member, and they must show their current USC ID to library staff at the library's front doors.

Carolina Cards are required after 9 p.m. Sunday - Thursday, and after 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

During the academic year, Thomas Cooper Library is open 24 hours to students, faculty and staff with valid Carolina Cards. Evening hours for visitors vary and can be found here.

See you at the library!
