Penn Libraries Study Breaks : Home


Reading days and final exams can often be a very stressful time for everyone.  All of us at the Penn Libraries want to ensure that students succeed academically but we also encourage you to find find and positive ways to relax and take a break.  We've compiled some resources for your to explore.

We're also excited to announce that Dog Days will still be held for the Spring semester! Join us online on April 30th and May 1st for our first ever digital Dog with cats!  Virtual rooms will be open for you to watch and interact with therapy dogs as well as the pets of Penn librarians and campus partners.  They're also available to answer questions you may have. 

We hope that you'll join us for the event and we also encourage you to explore the resources below.  Good luck on your finals!
