If you’re studying for Finals, the Library has got you covered! Our annual Teen Study Lounge will be open from Saturday, January 17 through Thursday, January 22 for Teens to use to their heart’s content. Snacks and drinks will be provided, and the rooms will be set up with tables and chairs to maximize the reviewing groove. Teens, if you’re looking for a quiet and contained place to study throughout your Finals, head down to our Lower Level Meeting rooms and grab a spot!
We also have 6 study rooms available for use on our Lower Level, and 2 study rooms on the main level in our Youth Services Dept. These enclosed rooms can be checked out for a maximum of 2 hours and include whiteboards and markers for use.
Of course the Library has resources a’plenty to offer for those cramming for the big exams. I’ve highlighted two of my faves for the studying Teen, but these and many more research tools can be found on our online resources page. The best part is, as long as you have a Deerfield Library card, any of the databases are free to use!
