Are you stressing out about those final exams and research papers right about now? Well, your Cedar Rapids Kirkwood Library and Tutoring Services are ready to help! On Tuesday, April 25th the first floor of the Library and Tutoring Services (at 2071 Cedar Hall) will once again be hosting a special day of activities for fun, relaxation and study which kicks off that “crunch time” of the semester.

First, let’s get serious! Tutoring services will provide tutors for math, science, accounting and computer skills throughout the day. Librarians will also be available to help with research and citations in the Library, as well as in Tutoring Services. Linn Hall will be the site for human anatomy & physiology and nursing assistance.

Now what about some relaxation? Both Tutoring Services and the Library will have spring crafts and coloring tables, with jig-saw puzzles available in the library. Make your own May basket anytime at  the library and “plant a seed” at Tutoring Services between 11AM and 1PM. The library will provide coffee, tea, lemonade, cookies and bags of popcorn throughout the day. During the morning, tables hosted by counselors’ (from Student Services) and Campus Health will be located at the front of the library, with nursing students providing blood pressure checks. Electric massage chairs will be available all through the finals period and a visit from therapy dogs will happen during activity hour on April 25th with a second visit scheduled at the library on Thursday, May 4th at 11:15AM.

Of course, we can’t forget the very popular student door prizes that are given away for Exam Cram and all you have to do to be eligible is attend this event. Enter at the Library and Tutoring Services to win gift cards and prizes provided by the Café, Bookstore, Eagle Tech, Student Life and the U.S. Bank.

Then once finals begin (May 8th), the library will be providing coffee, tea and lemonade to get you through those late nights! Extended hours are set to begin at the library on Monday, May 1st.
