Finals studying and decompressing at the library

Finals week can be very stressful, and it doesn't help that this year's schedule is so close to the holidays.  Never fear, Lane Library is there for you this time of year.  We have a variety of study spaces, longer hours, and reference help.  When it is time for a little escape, we offer snacks, hot beverages, crafts and puzzles.

  • Reference help:  Even when the best laid plans are made, sometimes those last minute research needs crop up.  As librarians, we are here to help, so please come find us in our offices when you are stumped.  If it happens after hours, please check out the library research guides for specific guidance in your area of study.  

 Stress Relieving activities: 

  • Snacks and hot beverages: When the time is right for a break, stop by for coffee or tea, with a little popcorn and cookies.  
  • Origami:  We will provide the paper and instructions, you find your zen spot with mountain and valley folds galore.
  • Snowflakes:  Need some window decorations to get into that holiday spirit?  Puffy paint and a little wax paper will go a long way.

  • Puzzles:  We will have puzzles out on the table
  • Coloring Contest:  Sharpen those crayons for the annual coloring contest, complete with bragging rights for the winner.
With so much going on, we look forward to seeing you at Lane Library!
