The Library is open the following hours:
Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. - 11 p.m.
Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Additional open hours are added during Finals Week at the end of the semester, and hours often change during breaks and between semesters. Current hours can always be found on the Library Hours page.
You can contact the Library in a variety of ways. Text and chat are monitored during most open Library hours. Chat messages and texts left when the Library is closed will usually be answered when the Library reopens. The different ways of contacting the Library are also listed on the Library Contact Us page.
The Henry Pfeiffer Library is located on the western edge of campus, at the corner of S. Clay Ave. and E. Beecher Ave.
If you need a item that isn't owned by the MacMurray College Library or another I-Share Library, you can request it through interlibrary loan. Once you submit a request, the Library will attempt to borrow the item from other libraries that own it.
Requests don't need to be for school, we are more than happy to try and get copies of books for leisure reading or any DVD movies you want to see.
This service is free to the MacMurray community, however some lending libraries may charge. We try and avoid dealing with libraries that charge, but if they are the only option, we will check with you before agreeing to any fees.
Journal articles are usually sent via e-mail attachment, so most requests are filled within a matter of days. Books, DVDs, and other physical items take varying amounts of time to come in. Items shipped from an Illinois library generally arrive within a week, while items from out-of-state libraries come through the mail, so something from Texas will generally take longer than something from Missouri.
