Stress Relief @ The Falvey Virtual Library

Finals week is here! We know that a lot of students are dealing with feelings of stress and anxiety, especially due to the challenging times we are facing with COVID-19. Although we can’t be together for on-site stress bustin’ activities this semester, Falvey is here to support you when you need it most. Whether you are looking for last-minute research assistance from a librarian, help navigating the library’s resources or just a general boost in the right direction, we have you (virtually) covered!

StressIn order to combat test stress this semester, we are proud to present our first-ever virtual pet visit. So, be sure to take a break, press “paws,” and join us via Zoom for a virtual pet visit featuring some of Falvey Library’s furry friends. You’ll have a chance to meet  Lemon, DeLune, Henrietta, Claude, and Jesse, on Tuesday, May 5, from 12-12:30 p.m. Join URL: (Villanova email required for entry).
