study, play, repeat cycle diagram
1. We have “Study, Play, Repeat” activities available all week. Scattered throughout the library are places where you can play with play-doh, cut out paper snowflakes, build with Legos, color bookmarks, and solve word searches and crosswords. Give your brain some study breaks and have some fun!

2. The computer lab in the library is a Quiet Zone this week. The door is shut to reduce noise, but feel free to come and go. This would be a great, quiet place to study or take an online exam.


3. There is a Study Music playlist ( on our YouTube channel. It is a compilation of other playlists that contain classical music and instrumental music–hours of songs that will help you concentrate and relax while you study.


Good luck on your finals this week!!
