Another Exam Cram down, finals to go!

The GRCC Library staff would like to wish students good luck on exams this week!  We hope that you were able to attend Exam Cram last week, if not we will be open normal hours this week so there is still time to get some studying done.  Also, we have some leftover snacks, stop in while they last!

Here are a few pictures of students using our new whiteboards and collaborative space, from last week’s event:

Exam Cram week is here!

Reminder: Exam Cram starts today and runs through Sunday, April 23rd.  Take advantage of our quiet study and group work spaces to prepare for exams and complete those final projects.  And, while you’re here enjoy free refreshments and a variety of stress relief activities!

Extended hours will once again be offered on Saturday and Sunday, April 22nd and 23rd, with the library being open from 10am until 10pm both days.  Expanded tutoring services will also be available during these extended hours on the weekend.

New this semester, you will also be able to have library fines waived from your account during the week of Exam Cram.  To take advantage of this limited time offer, or to learn more about this option, stop by our Circulation Desk located just inside the entrance, on the 1st floor of the library.

Also, check out our “Relaxation Stations” that are located throughout the Library.  These tables include coloring pages, Kids Food Basket lunch sack decorating supplies, magnet making supplies, mindfulness materials, and simple yoga instructions.  Turn in your works of art to be displayed at the Library or take them home to give as a gift!

Happy studying!
