Good Luck on Finals! Coffee & Cookies at the library to keep you fueled up!

The library sends all our students best wishes for successful finals and research papers! We know how hard you work and we are honored to be part of your academic experience. As always, The Ames Library offers coffee and cookies throughout finals week in the evening to keep you fueled up.

Good activity for our earlier opening hours this past weekend, with almost 200 people coming to the library on Saturday and Sunday morning.

Day Without Art in The Ames Library

The Ames Library participates each year in Day Without Art Day on December 1, the national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. To make the public aware that AIDS can touch everyone, and inspire positive action, some 800 U.S. art and AIDS groups participated in the first Day Without Art, shutting down museums, sending staff to volunteer at AIDS services, or sponsoring special exhibitions of work about AIDS. Since then, Day With(out) Art has grown into a collaborative project in which an estimated 8,000 national and international museums, galleries, art centers, AIDS service organizations, libraries, high schools and colleges take part. We appreciate having our students assist us with making this important statement.
