Take a Break at the Library this December

Final exams are coming, but make sure to take a break!

The University Library has several resources available to support you in preparation for final exams:

To accommodate the different learning styles and approaches to research and studying, we have established a variety of different types of spaces across our seven locations on campus. Whether you need open space to talk to study partners or quiet space for maximum focus, there is a University Library location for your needs. Take time to explore and find your new favourite study spot.

Take a Break

All library locations will have activity spaces where you can take a break from studying. These spaces are drop-in, casual and fun. There will be Play-Doh, crafts, puzzles, LEGO, and more to help you to relax and refocus before getting back to the books.

Take note of these Take a Break dates:

  • Education & Music Library: Dec. 2-18
  • Engineering Library: Dec. 9-20
  • Law Library: Dec. 2-18
  • Leslie and Irene Dubé Health Sciences Library: Dec. 2-13
  • Murray Library: Dec. 9-20
  • Science Library: Dec. 9-20
  • Veterinary Medicine Library: Dec. 9-20

Have a Snack

Thanks to the support of generous donors, all libraries on campus will be giving out snacks throughout final exams (with the exception of the Science Library which is always food-free. Juice boxes will be available there instead). Take a break to refuel so you can tackle even the toughest exam. Keep an eye out for alumni volunteers handing out complimentary snacks and refreshments. Also, make sure to read the words of encouragement from USask alumni on the screens throughout the library.

I know this can be a stressful and difficult time - please remember to take care of yourself, eat well, and keep up with your sleep.

PAWS Your Stress

We will have visits to the library from the St. John Ambulance registered therapy dogs from the PAWS Your Stress program.
