Stanford Libraries De-Stress Fest
Restricted to Stanford students and faculty.
Dog Petting • Music • Arts & Crafts • Gaming • And More!
In addition to the invaluable librarian support and awesome study spots sought after during this time of year, Stanford students are encouraged to drop by the Stanford Libraries just to de-stress.
Students are invited to stop by the many Stanford Libraries to participate in some stress-reducing activities before and during finals. Some of the libraries are hosting special morning coffee and snacks, dog petting dates, and karaoke. Other libraries have decided to designate areas within their buildings for games, puzzles, arts and crafts, and/or are pulling together specially selected novels for those who wish to take a break from studying to read. Find below some of the events being hosted at the Libraries:
