Finals Resting Place Begins Wednesday

It's that time of the year again where students must endure a nightmare before leaving for Christmas break. A nightmare called "finals!"

The Finals Resting Place is an annual activity during finals week where the library provides free refreshments, games and a contest to help students relax and take quality breaks while studying for finals in the library. This event runs from Wednesday, December 9th to Wednesday, December 16th.

The library will be open late for students on December 9, 10, 13, and 14. On these evenings, the library will remain open until midnight.

Refreshments will be offered on the evenings of December 9, 10, 13, 14, 15. Games will be available throughout the event.

The "Win a Christmas Gift" contest will begin on December 9th and a winner will be selected at noon on December 16th. A jar full of rubberbands will be placed at the circulation desk and contestants need only guess how many rubberbands are in the jar. Contest forms will be available at the desk. The winner will receive a wrapped Christmas gift from the Library.

Although the Library is making the study environment fun and festive, the Library does observe absolute quiet throughout the building during finals.
