Finals home stretch

We know that you’re studying hard in these last few days of finals (the library has been packed!). Following the end of the semester library tradition, we’ve put out a table filled with puzzles, stress balls, and candy. Stop by if you haven’t yet to study or say hello.

Taking a May term class? If you need the library after Finals Week our hours are always posted online.

We hope you all have a happy summer and special congratulations to the graduating class of Spring 2017!



A Puzzling Development……

Looks like you love puzzles!

Stop by the “Finals Stress Relief Center” on the first floor of the library for some necessary unwinding. We also provide some fun coloring books – no need to color between the lines. One librarian has already stress-broken three crayons and she’s not even studying for finals.


Finish this puzzle UT!


De-stress with a stress ball or two

Our annual finals week stress ball making table is here. Silly? Sort of. Does it work? Absolutely! It’s fun to make a couple, and squeeze the semester away while you’re on the finals homestretch.

Good luck everyone! Study hard, write a brilliant final paper, and finish this seasonal animals of the arctic puzzle…


The Adventures of Naughty Sparty at the Library

Finals can drive anyone a little crazy. Our beloved two dimensional mascot Flat Sparty has gotten into some shenanigans at the Macdonald-Kelce Library this week.

We think Sparty was trying to take a much needed breather from all the stress and had a little too much fun in the Library after hours………


Uh-oh. Flat Sparty messed up the puzzle. Stop by the library and help put it back together!


After getting reports about seeing lights on in the library after closing, we watched the security videos and found Sparty hiding in an old pom-pom in the back room. What is he doing here?


No, Sparty, that’s is not the way to make a stress ball. Stop by the library to make your own.


Flat Sparty wants to watch a movie. You need to stop by the front desk first, Sparty. Come by the library and check out a film to take a break while studying. Sorry, popcorn not provided.
