Spring 2018 #FinalsByAlden Kicks off on April 23 – OHIO University Libraries

Spring 2018 #FinalsByAlden Kicks off on April 23

The end of the school year is approaching. While you’re hard at work finishing your final projects and studying for exams, we’re busy getting ready to host a series of events and activities to help you push through to the end finish line. Because what’s Finals Week without a visit with a therapy dog or a chance to make your own button?

This semester, we’ve got some fun additions to the lineup.

  • We’ve worked with our new Art Librarian Michele Jennings to put together a collaborative art project on the 3rd floor dry erase board where we hope you’ll help turn one of our old stairwell posters into a work of art that showcases the creativity of the OHIO community. At dry erase wall, you’ll also find craft supplies and coloring pages that you can take to your own table for when you need a breather. The art project and craft supplies will go up on Monday, April 23.
  • Did you know that there is an International Tabletop Day, when tabletop game enthusiasts celebrate their hobby? We didn’t either until this semester when we found out we could partner with Bobcat Tabletop to offer a study break with easy-to-learn games and snacks. Bobcat Tabletop is an open recreational club, whose purpose is to play and enjoy Tabletop gaming.
  • We’re taking the button-maker across College Green this semester thanks to the staff of the Music & Dance Library. They’ll host their own button-making sessions on Tuesday, May 1 and Thursday, May 3. If you’re the type to keep score, you should know that this means there are four chances to make your own button this semester.
  • Finally, we’re taking our trivia contest to Instagram Stories this semester. We’ll share a series of images with questions from the @AldenLibrary account between 7 and 8pm on Tuesday, May 1. The first person to reply with the correct answer wins a prize – and bragging rights.
