Quote of the Week
“You have plenty of courage, I am sure,” answered Oz.
“All you need is confidence in yourself. There is no living thing that is not afraid when it faces danger. The true courage is in facing danger when you are afraid, and that kind of courage you have in plenty.”
-L. Frank Baum

Maybe dressing the part could help you find your courage, too (photo from pixabay.com).

May your preparations bring you luck for your final exams/papers/presentations.
We’ll be here to help until everything is turned in and settled. You’ll do and be great.


This Week at the Library,
                                       TODAY IS OUR TACKY/ UGLY/ CAT-THEMED OPEN HOUSE
FullSizeRender (5)
Five things that will happen if you stop by:

1.) You will receive (free!) coffee and/or hot chocolate
2.) You will take/receive an awkward polaroid in our (super ugly) sweater for two
3.) You will receive (free!) pretzels
4.) You will be entered into a tacky sweater raffle (!!!)
5.) You will (probably) feel less stressed

 

COME HANG OUT FROM 1:00 P.M.-6:00 P.M.,
IN THE FIRST FLOOR LOUNGE


#MindfulnessMonday 
If you’d like to bring flowers to someone’s home for a Christmas get-together (due to social etiquette or maybe because you’re just nice), a less expensive (but equally beautiful) alternative is to bring a potted poinsettia. In home improvement stores, prices start around three dollars!

Or just skip giving them and keep them for your own table tops (photo from flickr.com, Jodi Grundig).


This will be the final Peek at the Week of the Fall 2016 semester,
so I’ll take a moment to explain my gratitude: it was frightening to come to a new school in a new state with a new (freezing) climate—but I’m so happy. Really, really happy to be writing Peek at the Week, eating the thousandth pretzel from Holy Grounds, and sitting warmly inside Falvey Memorial Library.
