We know you’re busy prepping for finals, but finding time to step outside that study room and take a Library break can boost your brain power and help you study even harder!
A 2011 study shows that “even brief diversions from a task can dramatically improve one’s ability to focus on that task for prolonged periods.” So take that break; it’s scientifically proven that you need it!
Try any of the following brain-boosting activities, available in the Library:
Coloring pages (by the check-out desk)
Chair Yoga (Mondays, 12-1, in L217 and online)
Tabletop games (ask at the check-out desk for Uno, Connect 4, Bananagrams, Checkers, or Chess!)
We're here to support your success in your final push of the semester!
Monday-Thursday: 8:30 am to 8:00 pm
Friday: 8:30 am to 2:00 pm
Saturday: 10:30 am to 2:00 pm
In addition to our in-person hours, your PC librarians are available online and are ready to provide research assistance. You can schedule a virtual (or in-person) Research Coach appointment to meet one-on-one with a librarian. For immediate assistance, use our Ask A Librarian service to chat with a real librarian anytime, 24/7. You can also check our YouTube channel to find quick tutorials related to library resources and services. Have other questions?
