If you are planning on bringing her in and keeping her awake for the winter, then YES, bring her in and make sure she gets 14 hours of light.

This is the time of year that turtles sense diminishing day length and gear up for hibernation mode: you want to interrupt that cycle in order to keep her active and feeding through the winter..

If you were going to let her hibernate, then these temperatures and day-length conditions wouldn't matter.
