The last semester of school year is hard! It is stressful, and at times overwhelming. We at Meriam Library are here to support you. We provide space for research, tutoring, studying, collaboration, and relaxation. Sometimes it is the little things that can make a difference. So in addition to our De-Stress program, we have hidden cards of encouragement throughout the building. Whether you find a letter or not, we hope you finish strong!

February is Black History Month and the Meriam Library has designed and created a display on black women activists from the 1900s to current. Browse the display on the second floor of the library to see a timeline of seminal events during this period, photos of women, and their inspiring quotes. On the other side of the display are a diverse assortment of books on black women and black history-all of these books can be checked out. Be sure to help yourself to a button with either inspirational words or photos of these amazing women.
