We know that student life can be stressful. Your health is important to us here at the University of Alberta Library. This guide will share some of the resources at the library and beyond to help you take a break whenever you need it. #KeepCalmLibraryOn
Did you know we have treadmill desks at some of our locations? You can study while taking a stroll. Double the benefits! (Especially in the long days of winter.) Who said that couldn't be done?!
Found in the following libraries:
Staff at these locations will be happy to direct you to their exact locations.
We have height-adjustable tables to study at, in all of our locations. These desks can be adjusted to an array of heights to fit your needs. You can work while standing, lower the desk to a comfortable sitting position or, switch between the two!
Visit the lounge space on the main floor of Augustana library and enjoy colouring sheets and other wellness resources.
Got kids? On the Lower Level of the library is our Kids Korner, a fully equipped area with toys, colouring books and seating for kids to play quietly while parents/guardians study. Children can ask at the service desk to borrow LeapPad Ultra Tablet to use while in the space.
The lounge area on Level 2 of the John W. Scott Health Sciences Library is a comfortable space where students can take a break. It includes a standing light therapy lamp and take-a-book, leave-a-book collection.
