On Thursday, December 1st, your Cedar Rapids Kirkwood Library and Tutoring Services  (2071 Cedar Hall) will hold its semi-annual “Exam Cram” event from 8AM until 9PM. This is the kick-off for that intense semester period of paper writing and exam taking! Tutoring Services will provide math, science and computer skills help throughout the day. While the library 1st floor will host a variety of special activities for stress relief and fun, including a special table hosted by Kirkwood’s counselors from Student Services. Oh, and let’s not forget the library’s coffee, hot chocolate, cookies and popcorn! Attend both locations for a chance to win one of many student door prizes being given away (provided by the Café, Campus Bookstore, Student Life and Eagle Tech).

Now for more of the fun. The library will have adult coloring, puzzles, holiday crafts and electric massage chairs when you need to take a break. Kristi Murdock, Animal Health Technology, will provide a therapy dog visit during activity hour (11:15AM ) outside the library classroom. (And as a bonus, there are plans for a second visit during finals week on Monday, December 12th around 10AM.)

Need more relaxation? On December 8th, Kirkwood’s very own nursing instructor, Nicoleta Nica, will be providing a workshop on essential oils in the library classroom during activity hour (11:15AM). This will be open to students, faculty and staff.

Then once exams begin on December 9th, the library will be providing coffee, hot chocolate and tea to get you through those late nights! There will be extended library hours beginning Sunday, December 4th through Wednesday, December 14th. What more could a student ask for? But if you have other ideas or suggestions, email us: library@kirkwood.edu

We’re here to serve you!

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 and Tutoring Services on Thursday, December 1st!
