With finals in full swing, I’m sure many of you are feeling stressed out right now. The library has many materials that can help you relax.
We have many books, ebooks, DVDs, and CDs on the topic of stress and stress management that are available for checkout.
Studies show that spending time in nature can reduce stress and improve health. Even though it’s cold outside, go take a walk in one of our many local forest preserves. Here are some books on that topic.
We also have plenty of magazines, movies/TV shows, and fictional books available for checkout. You can find our magazines in and near the coffee bar. Our movies can be browsed virtually here or by going to the lower level of the library and looking for the call number PN1997. One place to browse for fun books would be in our After Class Collection. You can browse it virtually here, or you can find the collection in our library lounge (big open area of the library near the front doors). Our graphic novels, comic books, and manga can be browsed here or by going to the call number PN67 in the lower level of the library. I’m personally a fan of reading children’s books for fun. You can search through them virtually here, or go to the lower level of the library and look for the call number PZ7.
Items checked out during finals week will be due back the first week of January. You can always renew by calling or by logging into your library account and renewing them there.
As always, if you need help, you can always ask a librarian.
