Finals Hours, FREE COFFEE and DeStress Support!

The Library’s # 1 goal this time of year is to offer students an academic sanctuary – – a place where they can go to study in quiet, meet with their groups to complete final projects and refuel themselves any time of the day or night.

De-Stress During Finals initiative:

  1. Open 24 hours beginning on Wednesday, Dec 10 (except we close at 9:00 pm on Saturday, Dec 13). Stay Up All Night with Us! Free coffee, tea and hot chocolate all night long!
  2. Free coffee, tea and hot chocolate and snacks every morning beginning Thursday, Dec 11 in Cafe (except on Sunday, Dec 14)
  3. Doggie De-Stress event 3-5 pm on Wednesday 12/10 and Monday  12/15 as part of our De-Stress During Finals program. Come down to the Multimedia Auditorium on the lower level to pet dogs Belle and Beau, owned by a local alumna Marilyn Rice , and see your stress float away.
  4. Visit our DeStress station, located in lobby, for study tips, free earplugs and more!
