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. 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!
On April 30 and May 1, certified therapy dogs will greet students from 2 to 6 p.m. in the Library Quad.
The EIU Meditation Club will offer special sessions to help students alleviate stress, reduce anxiety and strengthen focus. These sessions will be offered in the library’s Edgar Room at 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on April 29 through May 1.
Beginning April 27, mad-libs, coloring pages and bookmarks, and Sudoku puzzles will be available to take and complete on your own. Students also are invited to help complete a larger jigsaw puzzle or group coloring page. These will be set up on the main (third) floor.
At 6 p.m. April 30, free popcorn and lemonade will be served to students while supplies last.
All activities and refreshments are free.
