But while you're doing all that studying, don’t let stress get the better of you – you can also Take a Break at the University Library.

Postcards from the library locations letting people know about Take a Break events


The library branches hosting Take a Break spaces are the Murray Library, the Leslie & Irene Dubé Health Sciences Library, the Engineering Library, the Education & Music Library, and the Science Library. These spaces are drop-in, casual, and fun. There is Play-Doh, crafts, puzzles, LEGO, board games, and more to help you to relax and refocus before getting back to the books.

Have a Snack

All of the seven libraries on campus will be giving out snacks, generously donated by the Alumni Association. You may even see some Alumni volunteers wandering through certain libraries, handing out treats!
