Survive Exam Week!
Exam week is coming up, but don’t panic! We can help. The library is the perfect place for studying, with spaces to read and revise, expert researchers, and fun events to help you de-stress.
Sometimes there are too many distractions at home to have a productive study session. At the library, you can find a place that fits your needs. Most of our libraries have study rooms that you can use with a group or on your own. Reserve one with your library card. We also have quiet study spaces at Fairfield, Libbie Mill, Tuckahoe, Twin Hickory, and Varina for when you are looking for a really quiet place to settle in. These spaces are shared, and there is no need to make a reservation.
Check out our favorite research databases, or browse them all. These databases contain verified, scholarly articles on so many different topics. If you don’t know where to start, or are stuck looking for that perfect citation, just ask! Librarians are great at finding information, and we are always excited to help you find the research you need.
Remember to take a break when studying. You can relax in the teen room, grab a fun book to read, or attend one of our exam week programs:
