On Tuesday, December 2nd, your Cedar Rapids Kirkwood library will be holding its first “Exam Cram” event from 8AM until 9PM. There will be a variety of activities being held on the library’s first floor to help students with their papers and finals, as well as special activities for stress relief and fun. Oh, and let’s not forget the coffee, hot chocolate, cookies and popcorn!

While several of the day’s events are still being planned, we will have tutors here all day to help with students’ writing, math and basic computer questions. Our special guests will be Keith Reins, head of the writing center, from 10AM until 12PM and Gina Larson, English faculty, from 7 – 9PM in the evening. Pam Hamilton, developmental math instructor will be here between 2:30 and 5:30 that afternoon.

Now for the fun, we will have board games and puzzles in the library classroom when you feel like taking a break. AND thanks to Kristi Murdock, Animal Health Technology, we will have a visit from Therapy Dogs International from 1 – 1:30PM (and possibly a surprise visit that morning from her own dog, Ziva). A yoga class, provided by the rec center, is scheduled for 12:30 – 1:15PM in the library classroom. All movements will be done standing or with a chair, so come as you are! Campus Health is providing ten finals survival kits, which we will be raffling off, and it is free to enter! Samivest

Updates to the day’s activities will be posted here and on the library’s Facebook page, so check back often and plan to visit your Kirkwood library on December 2nd!

UPDATES: An extra therapy dog visit with Ziva and friend is planned for 10AM.

A portable massage chair will be available for students in the library classroom.
