A student walks into Ellis Library at night. The library started new hours during the Fall 2015 semester, remaining open from midnight to 7 a.m. every weekday.

The Overnighters

During the 2015-2016 school year Ellis Library at the University of Missouri experimented with remaining open 24 hours a day during the school week. The experiment was short-lived and the next year returned to its previous opening hours. The Overnighters is a photo essay documenting people who burnt the midnight oil while the library had the extended hours during the Fall of 2015.
