Stress ReDUCKtion

Photo of a group of rubber ducks with notes attached saying "Stress ReDUCKtion QUAK! You found me! Head down to the Circulation desk and claim your stress reducing prize!"

Inserting a bit of whimsy into the academic library, staff hid 20 rubber ducks throughout Kathryn A. Martin Library’s four floors throughout the month of March. If found, the finders were able to redeem their duck for a de-stress kit, which included candy, stressballs, pencils, lanyard and stress-reduction tips.

Zombie Attack

Zombie outbreak warning message

Imagine our surprise when we found out a rogue scientist had set up a lab right here in the library ... and, you guessed it, things have gone awry. The tests have gotten out of control, and we’re now overrun with zombies!

In this fun after-hours program, young adult patrons came to the library ready to battle the hordes. Their challenge: use their smarts to decode clues ... or become one of the infected.

Holidaze Crafts for Teens

Holiday Crafts

I love the holidays, so I always look forward to planning many different holiday programs just for teens. This year, I decided to create a program where teens can create holiday crafts to give to friends and family. My plan is to have several stations where they can create holiday cards, a sweet treat, ornaments and a peppermint candy bowl. I also really want to have a gift-wrapping station so they can wrap all of their presents, as well as a tasty refreshment center. I found an awesome recipe for hot cocoa and holiday frosted brownies for the refreshment center.
