Finals FUN at the Library (PLV)

News Story

Who would've thought your Library card could swipe you into puppy playtime, toast, zen gardening, games, and more? Though finals are near, Mortola Library is having the best week ever.

Mortola Library is serving up events to help you destress and they involve two fan favorites: puppies AND carbs. Come out for Stress Relief Week to help you unwind after a very long semester.

Toast-mageddon 2016
Monday, December 5 | 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. | Mortola Library
Stressed the most? Eat some toast! The end of the semester is near and the library is “toasting” to the end… literally! Join them for a variety of different breads and spreads at their very special toast bar. Grab a snack and take a #toastie (it’s like a selfie, but with toast) to mark the occasion.

Color and Chill
Tuesday, December 6 | 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.| Mortola Library
Remember the good old days when coloring was a regular classroom activity? Take a break from the textbooks and unwind with some classic Crayolas and a couple of coloring books.

The Dogtors Will See You

The Good Dog Foundation, which provides animal-assisted therapy services to more than 350 partner facilities in four states, including at disaster sites around the country, as well as hospitals, schools, and nursing homes, is returning to PLV to help provide some stress relief during finals. To help make your ruff days more paw-some, the puppies will be making two days of stops in PLV.

Zen Gardening

Build you own little oasis! Take part in Zen gardening and craft a cute new decoration for your desk that will help you destress.  

Clay Creations

Puzzles for Fun
Thursday, December 8 | 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.| Mortola Library
