Study Room with a View

The fall semester is in full swingThe leaves are changing, finals are fast approaching--and stress is in the air. You need a break from studying and projects to rest and clear your mind. Where to go? The library balcony.

You have a paper due soon, you're feeling the pressure, and you want a peaceful spot to finish your work. Where to find one? The library balcony.

The library balcony--located in the Blagg-Huey Library on the west end of the first floor near the vending/copier room--is the library's best-kept secret. Available every day the library is open, the balcony provides library patrons with a tree-lined, Wi-Fi enabled, non-smoking covered space to work, relax, eat or socialize. "It's so gorgeous out here", said student Dalia Mendoza.

Library patrons are welcome to bring food and drinks on the balcony, and hours are posted just inside the balcony door. For assistance, please see a library staff member either in Circulation or at the Information desk.

Autumn is one of the prettiest times of year in Denton, and studies have shown that nature is a natural stress reducer. Do yourself a favor--sometime during your busy day on campus, get some fresh air in a relaxed setting. Spend some time on the library balcony today.
