Classes are over; exams are upon us. It’s time to reacquaint yourself with your parents and siblings, and, likely, work more hours to pay for next semester’s tuition. Be sure, though, to build in a little time for leisure reading. The College Board has a recommended reading list for college students that is a great place to get started. Good Reads provides the same list with social media commentary. Create a free account and then tag books as Read, Currently Reading, or Want to Read. Happy Reading!
If you need to study, the library is a great place to get it done. We offer quiet places to study in small groups and we offer study carrels for individual study.
New to the second floor of the library is “white noise.” White noise is a “buzzing” sound designed to muffle voices and other sounds that might distract you while studying. Check it out and let us know what you think because we can make some adjustments if we have to. The “white noise” is now buzzing in the northeast corner on the second floor, just left of the magazines and periodicals.
The LLC has added iPhone and Android convertible cell phone chargers to the list of items we loan for in-house use. If your phone needs a quick charge, check one out at the Circulation Desk.
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!
