Finals Are Over!

Category: The Teen Scene
Posted: January 13, 2017

By: Hannah Rapp, Young Adult Librarian

You did it!  You made it through finals! If you’re a senior at West or South, you’ve made it through your last ever high school finals. Congratulations! You’ve probably been too busy studying for the last couple of weeks to think about anything else, so now that you’re done, we wanted to remind you of some things going on in library-land that you may have missed in your finals haze.

We’re having an art contest! Details here, and we’re accepting submissions through the end of the month.

We still have hot chocolate for you. Finals may be over, but starting next week, we’ll be back to our regular Tuesday and Thursday Homework Café, which means you can still get hot chocolate and coffee while you study.

We have some cool new toys. New toys like an Oculus Rift and a Play Station VR, which you can come use at our Virtual Reality Showcase on February 4.

We have a new teen librarian! By the time you read this, I will be officially done with my time as your teen librarian here at GEPL. But the good news is, we have a great new teen librarian starting ASAP. Keep your eyes out for Josh O’Shea next time you’re in the library, and have fun getting to know our awesome new young adult librarian.

In true Hannah fashion, I’d like to make my exit and reward your hard work with some of my favorite pictures I’ve posted over the last few years (shocker: they feature cute animals). Congratulations on finishing finals!
