We had a wonderful kick off to our Winter Lights events in early November when we heard about some of the stressors that come with wintertime and heard about coping strategies, and crowdsourced some ideas for local places to visit and things to do. We’ve collected all the ideas into one great library guide to surviving winter! We then decorated light jars so that we could all bring a little light back to our living space.
We hope you’ll join us at our next event on Tuesday, December 4. We’ll discuss ways to cope with holiday stresses and find joy this season. You’ll also get to make your own water light to take home.
“Winter Lights” is a four part series for students, faculty and staff to help you survive and thrive in the cold dark days of winter. Each session has a different theme includes a speaker, a hands-on activity, and a chance to brainstorm and share ideas to find light and joy in the winter. Those ideas are collected and shared on the library winter survival guide as the series progresses.
All are welcome at these events, whether you can make it to only one event or to all four, we hope to see you there! All events are held in the O’Shaughnessy-Frey library in the Leather room (108) from 3:30 – 4:30 pm. Future event dates are:
- Dec. 4: Brighten your holidays
- Jan. 8: Moving into a new year
- Feb. 12: Growing into spring
