Schoolwork stressing you out? Got the winter blues? Hirsh Library and the Student Advisory & Health Administration Office (SAHA)  are here to help! We love you and know you’re working hard, so we’re joining forces to bring you a week filled with fun activities to help you de-stress.

Here are the events in the library:

Tuesday 2/9, 2:30pm
Library Study Break: Afternoon Tea
Take a study break and join us on Sackler 4 for tea and treats

Thursday 2/11 and Friday 2/12, 12pm
Library Fun Lab: Valentine’s Crafts
Drop-in and make a valentine! We’ll have a variety of supplies out so you can craft something to show your love or appreciation for a friend, family member, or that special someone (your favorite librarian, perhaps?).

Keep an eye out for SAHA’s events on Wednesday and Friday:

Wednesday 2/10, All Day
Kisses and Inspiration
The Student Wellness Advisor will be roaming around campus delivering sweets and encouragement

Friday 2/12, 2pm
Unconditional Love from Furry Friends
Come to Sackler 114 and unwind before the holiday weekend with therapy dogs, healthy snacks, and a chocolate fountain!

Hirsh Health Library will be having extended hours for the next two upcoming weekends! This means that on April 25th & 26th, as well as May 2nd & 3rd, the desk on the 4th floor will be open 10am – 10pm, so you can check things out earlier and keep them later!

But wait: there’s more! Sackler will stay open until 2am on both Saturdays – April 25th and May 2nd – so you can stay and study even later.

Oh, and one last thing: FREE COFFEE! On both Sundays – April 26th and May 3rd – there will be free coffee available on Sackler 4 after the cafe closes up at 7 pm.

So there you have it. Longer desk hours, longer building hours, and free coffee. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to swing by the desk or call us at 617-636-6706.

And don’t forget: If you’re free and in Sackler today, we will have therapy puppies from 3 pm – 5 pm in room 507. So drop by and say hi to them as well!

Happy Studying!

Ahhhhh!

It’s National Stress Awareness Month!

Take a moment to breathe deep, go for a stroll, do some stretches, or play a game (don’t forget, we have some at the Library Service Desk!).

You could also do this, but we don’t recommend it:

Here at Hirsh Library, we’ll have some activities throughout the month to help you de-stress, so stay tuned! In the meantime, check out some of the stress-reduction and relaxation tools up on the Tufts’ Counseling & Mental Health Services website.

 

The Hirsh Library is excited to be working with Paws 4 People from Tufts’ Grafton Campus to bring  some cute, cuddly canines to help you de-stress.

Boo, Jett, Shinto and Bear will be available for cuddles in Room 507 from 3:30-5pm this Thursday, April 24th. See you there!
