Quote of the Week: 
“‘Supposing a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?’
‘Supposing it didn’t, said Pooh after careful thought.
Piglet was comforted by this.”
-A.A. Milne

I hope you’ve not had too many political conversations over dinner (unless maybe that’s your family’s thing) and are rested enough to finish the semester strong. We have a big three weeks(ish) ahead of us and then (finally) we come to the purest form of the holiday season: a whole month without academic responsibility.

This week in the library:
Tuesday, Nov. 29th,
-Food for Thought Discussion- VITAL, Room 207, 11:30-12:45 p.m.
-Theology & Religious Studies: Faith & Culture, Room 204, 5:00-6:30 p.m.
-Agape Latte, First Floor Lounge, 8:00-9:00 p.m.
Wednesday, Nov. 30th,
-Food for Thought Discussion-VITAL, Room 206, 11:30-12:45
Friday, Dec. 2nd, 
-ACS Writing Awards Reception, Speaker’s Corner, 3:30-5:00 p.m.

I asked William Repetto what he does to de-stress, in hopes he would spark inspiration for this section of the blog. He said things like “take a walk, cook a gluten-free meal, actually do my work, etc.”
However, none of these options felt right for this week’s #MindfulnessMonday.
He then said, “people could read Cat in the Stacks!”

So that is my suggestion to you all this week in case you were in need of an insightful, contemplative, inspiring, unique read this week.

Save the Date: 

Monday, Dec. 12th, 
-Final Day of Classes
Tuesday, Dec. 13th, 
-Reading Day (yay!)

Just to reiterate: 
In this difficult time we at Falvey Library want to remind students that Safe Zone volunteers offer a place that any student can come to seek solace or refuge. No appointment necessary. No questions asked.

Many Safe Zone Volunteers at Falvey will have the Safe Zone logo posted on their office door, but you can also access a full alphabetical Listing of Safe Zone Volunteers/Locations here

This is a list of Safe Zone Volunteers at Falvey:
Robin Bowles, Second Floor Office 220,
Luisa Cywinski, First Floor Access Services,
Nikolaus Fogle, Second Floor Office 227,
Millicent Gaskell, Old Falvey Admin Office,
Mary Beth Simmons, Second Floor Writing Center 202,
Sarah Wingo, Second Floor Office 223,
