Your mind might be locked up studying for exams. We’re providing teens with a space to study, snack and relax during finals week. The study rooms are reserved if you need a quiet space. We can help you access Brainfuse if you need last-minute help. Light refreshments available to nibble on. If you need a study break, pop some bubble wrap, build with Legos or Magna-tiles or just listen to some music for awhile. The Library is here to help you recharge for test-taking.
