Go on a Blind Date with a BookIMG_1930

Have you ever been on a blind date with a book? Stop by this week to try it out…titles are wrapped up so you won’t know what you’re getting, but isn’t that the fun of finding a new book?

All titles have been hand-picked by library staff. Happy Reading!

Coffee Bene has also graciously agreed to be open on Saturday (!), 12/13, from 10:30am-4pm

Stress-Free Zone

Do you need to just get away from it all for a moment or two?  Stop by our “Stress Free Zone” in room 102 each afternoon 12/15-19 for some coloring, puzzles, card games, and more.  Remember, it’s been proven that regular study breaks can help with concentration!

Ear Plugs and Lockers

Need some help focusing?  Grab some earplugs in the OSF Rotunda and/or drop off your valuables in a locker at the circulation desk.  Noise and worry about theft will be gone, leaving more time to focus on your work!
