Coffee, dogs and snacks: Achieve zen status at the Library's Crunch Time Café

Breathe in. We can’t believe classes are almost over. Breathe out. Breathe in. Once classes are done, that means finals, then grades, then a new year, then another semester. Breathe out. Are we calm yet? Is it summer? Where are we? Who are we really? Owls, if we learned anything this semester, it’s that achieving zen status ain't easy. Something else that we learned is the library’s Crunch Time Café events are the best way to relax, recharge and pet dogs. Yep, DOGS!!! All next week, shake your stress off with coffee, crafts, dogs, games, snacks and more dogs—basically everything we need to keep it 100, or at least in the high 90s.
