The end of the semester is creeping closer and closer. The end of semester panic is slowly starting to set in as you wonder where the last two and a half months have gone. Luckily you an opportunity to be super productive.

Tomorrow, Wednesday March 15th, the library will once again play host to the Long Night Against Procrastination. The event kicks off at 7:00pm with free study tools to help you become your most productive self. From 7:00pm to 2:00am writing help and learning skills help will be available, while math help will be available from 7:30pm to 9:30pm.

Help available throughout the night includes the following: research help at the reference desk, IT help, a stress reduction zone, a book sale, door prizes, and the safe walk program. These individuals are there are as resources for you, so don’t hesitate to ask for help.

As always there will be free beverages and snacks throughout the night, and free pizza will make its midnight appearance. Cookies and Cram are there for you at that 2:00am lull. For the brave individuals who make it all night and through to 8:00am Thursday, March 16th, there will be a free breakfast bar and juice at the circulation desk. Or those who are early birds and want to get some studying and breakfast in before that 8:30AM class.

I am sad to say that this will be my final Long Night Against Procrastination. I have enjoyed participating in this event over the last few years, and cannot say enough good things about it. If you haven’t been I highly recommend it, if you have, then you know how much fun it is. You are under no obligation to stay the entire evening. The library will be ready and waiting for you with open arms. So, do yourself a favour and head to the library on March 15th. Even if you only cross one thing off your to do list, you will be glad you did.
