Take a Break at the Library

Feeling stressed from exams?

Final exams are coming, but don’t let stress get the better of you – Take a Break at the University Library. There will be Play-Doh, crafts, puzzles, LEGO, board games, music, and more for you to relax and have fun with. The library locations hosting the Take a Break spaces are: the Murray Library, the Leslie & Irene Dubé Health Sciences Library, the Engineering Library, the Education & Music Library, and the Science Library.

All of the seven libraries on campus will be giving out snacks, generously donated by the Alumni Association. You may even see some Alumni volunteers wandering through certain libraries, handing out treats. There will also be visits from our canine friends from the PAWS Your Stress program throughout December. There’s lots to do, so don’t miss out on your chance to de-stress in the library!
