Take a “Study Paws” with the Therapy Dogs of Johnson County on Tuesday, Dec. 15, 4:30-6:30 pm in 2032 LIB.

Need to change gears for a few minutes? Try taking a puzzle break. The Digital Scholarship & Publishing Studio has provided some jigsaw puzzles to help refresh your thinking. Check out the puzzles by the service desk throughout finals week.

For a quick diversion, visit our Pop Up Library, featuring books you can check out for an extended period over break. These will be available Wednesday, Dec. 9 through Wednesday, Dec. 16.

The Main Library will offer free popcorn on Tuesday, Dec. 15, 1-2 pm. Students at Main after 10 pm can grab a free cup of coffee. Free coffee after 10 pm begins Saturday, Dec. 12 through Tuesday, Dec, 15.
