UPDATE 2 (September 5, 2013, 5:15 PM)
After various discussions between members of Student Government (SG), Academic Affairs and USF administration, the university announced Thursday the Library’s hours would be restored to being open 24 hours, 5 days a week — possibly as soon as next week.
Interim Vice President for Student Affairs Tom Miller and student body President William Warmke announced the decision outside the Library Thursday afternoon, as students continued to sign letters to be sent to USF President Judy Genshaft as to why the hours should be restored.

Here’s an update to our coverage from last week about student protests at the University of South Florida over reduced library hours.
USF students have set up shop outside the university’s library and are writing letters to President Judy Genshaft in an effort to have longer library hours reinstated.
So far, more than 150 letters have been penned.
