FINALS WEEK ACTIVITIES OFFERED AT BOOTH LIBRARY
Feeling stressed as the end of the semester nears? Booth Library has you covered, with a variety of activities planned.

First, let your friends and families know how you're preparing for final exams by sending them a "Don't worry, I'm at Booth Library!" postcard. A limited number of postcards are available in the Marvin Foyer. Students are encouraged to fill out and address a postcard, then place it in the mailbox. Your friends at Booth Library will mail it for you! (U.S. postage free; international postage $1).

On Dec. 12 and 13, certified therapy dogs will greet students from 2 to 5 p.m. in the south lobby of the library.

Beginning Dec. 9, mad-libs, coloring pages and bookmarks, and Sudoku puzzles will be available in the Marvin Foyer and south lobby to take and complete on your own. Coloring supplies may be borrowed from the reference or LTS desks.

Students also are invited to help complete a larger jigsaw puzzle or group coloring page. These supplies will be set up in the Marvin Foyer.

From 7 to 9 p.m. Dec. 12, free popcorn and lemonade will be served to students while supplies last.

All activities and refreshments are free.

For finals week, the library will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Dec. 10 (extended hours); noon to 1 a.m. Dec. 11; 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. Dec. 12-15, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 16.
