Torn between taking a break to make a craft or to eat a snack? This week you’re in luck! Stop by the Library Service Desk this Thursday 12/7 and Friday 12/8 starting at 1pm and create an architectural masterpiece with graham crackers, frosting, and a bunch of candy.

And to make this week even sweeter, we’re also welcoming Paws for People back on Thursday from 2-4pm! Stop by the room behind the cafe on Sackler 4 and relax with some therapy dogs. But please don’t share your gingerbread house with them!

The leaves are changing color and the weather’s getting colder. Fall is here! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a custom cozy to decorate your favorite seasonally-spiced hot drink? Stop by the Library Service Desk starting at 12pm on Thursday 9/21 and Friday 9/22 to create a cozy that’ll cradle your to-go cups and protect your hands in style. All you need to bring is your creativity!

Torn between taking a break to make a craft or to eat a snack? This week you’re in luck! Stop by the Library Service Desk this Thursday 12/8 and Friday 12/9 starting at 12pm and create an architectural masterpiece with graham crackers, frosting, and a bunch of candy. Each element tastes good on its own, but it tastes even better together in the shape of a house.

It’s that wonderful time of the year again. Yes, that’s right. It’s turkey time! Starting at 12pm this Thursday 11/19 and Friday 11/20, you can stop by the Library Service Desk and create your own feathered friend to bring home to Mom (or back to your study carrel). We’ll have a variety of materials out so you can create anything your heart desires, from the simple and majestic hand turkey (our personal favorite) to 3D  pinecone poultry. Don’t have time to delve into a craft? Just lend a hand–we only need the outline!–to the giant library turkey we plan to make.

See you there!
