Welcome back for Fall 2022!

As we all begin a new Fall semester, Pitts Theology Library is excited to welcome new students, and to see familiar faces back at Candler!

Set yourself up for success by getting familiar with Pitts spaces, hours, and policies. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us at pitts.emory.edu/ask with any questions, and we’ll look forward to seeing you at the library!


Pitts is open seven days a week during the semester. Monday-Thursday we’re open 7:30am- 9:00pm, Fridays 7:30am-6pm, Saturdays 10:00am-5pm, and Sundays 2:00pm-8:00pm. You can find our full hours at pitts.emory.edu/hours.

Food & Drinks

Please help us keep the library clean and our books safe. Drinks in covered containers and small snacks are permitted at Pitts, but please refrain from bringing full meals into the library. You should enjoy your meals in the atrium just outside the library. In addition, we ask that you clean up after yourself. Please be aware of the recycling and compost receptacles on every floor of the library and dispose of waste properly.


Please remember to tap or swipe your EmoryCard to enter the library!

While here, keep in mind that you are sharing the space and be respectful of others. All Emory students, faculty, and staff, as well as community patrons, are welcome in the library. Please be hospitable in sharing outlets, tables, and other resources and maintaining a low volume in conversations and collaborative work.

Pitts has small group study rooms available for booking at pitts.emory.edu/rooms. These rooms can be reserved for up to two hours per person per day and up to a week in advance. Please review the room policies before booking and be aware that although these spaces are great for group work, they are not soundproof!
