Stress Relief at the Library

Albertsons Library is helping you squash the stress of final exams starting Dead Week with a collaboration with Advising & Academic Enhancement (AAE). Staff from AAE will have a table in the library to offer study assistance. You may also notice their study tips on bookmarks, slides and Toilet Talk flyers. Here’s what else we have planned during Finals Week:

  • On Monday, 12/15, Special Collections will have comics from our collection on display as well as materials to do your own drawings, and local comics writer/illustrator Al Asker will be on hand to talk about comics from 1-4pm. 
  • Monday at midnight the library will host a Zumba session in room 201C.
  • Tuesday at midnight we will have a yoga session in room 201C.
  • All week, indoor lawn games will be set up, and available for checkout. If you post a picture of your friends playing the lawn games to the library Facebook page, you’ll be automatically entered in a drawing to win a portable power pack!

As usual, Albertsons is also partnering with ASBSU to offer cram snacks Sunday-Wednesday of Finals Week. In addition, we’ll be hosting a knitting hour from 2-3pm Monday through Thursday in the niche where Starbucks’ door used to be. All are welcome, experienced or not. 

More information on knitting and other ways to relieve stress is available on our Stress Relief guide http://guides.boisestate.edu/stressrelief.

Best of luck on your exams and final projects!
