Library time

What time or day do people talk about libraries, or visit them?
According to this it is unsurprisingly every day during general opening hours, with a slight preference for the middle of the week rather than later.

Conversely, people talk about or visit archives more frequently at the end of the week and at weekends.

Scott Golder of Cornell University has created a way of determinng what people (on Twitter) are doing or saying at what time.  This is done by running chosen text against a data set of millions of time coded Twitter messages. Go see http://timeu.se
