Quiet, caffeine, food at K-State Libraries May 11-13
Quiet study space and free caffeine and food are precious commodities during finals week, but K-State Libraries aims to serve.
Starting Sunday, May 11, the Hale Library Quiet Zones expand to include both third and first floors. In Quiet Zones, cellphones should be on vibrate, conversations or group work are discouraged and headphones should be turned down.
From 5 p.m. to midnight Sunday-Wednesday, K-State Libraries also will open the Hemisphere Room on the fifth floor as a Quiet Zone. As with the Great Room in the northwest corner of the third floor, the Hemisphere Room has very limited number of power outlets, so laptops and other electronics are not recommended.
Once everyone has settled into the perfect study spot and is craving food and drink, the Libraries will deliver with Caffeine Fix. Free coffee, tea, snacks and sympathy will be served from 10 p.m. to midnight Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
This year's sponsors include Einstein Bros Bagels, Bluestem Bistro, Jimmy Johns, Varsity Donuts and Wildcat 91.9.
