Featured Study Space – Visit the CRC

As we get ready for finals, each day we’ll feature some of the lesser-known study spaces in the Jerome Library. Floors 2 through 5 house our Special Collections, but can also be great places to study, away from the crowds!

Curriculum Resource Center

What do Katniss Everdeen, Winnie the Pooh, and Jackie Robinson all have in common? They’re all characters in books available at the Curriculum Resource Center!

And if studying has got you down this Finals Week, why not treat yourself to reading The Hunger Games, Finding Winnie, or Jackie’s Bat? And while you’re picking up a copy at the CRC, why not stay to study?

The Curriculum Resource Center is the ideal place to tuck away and study during Finals Week. In addition to many group study tables, we have an entire classroom, Room 210B, at your disposal (just check the schedule posted outside to see if it’s available). A few of our tables are even tucked away from foot traffic if you really desire a quiet place to work.

As an added bonus, you’ll be surrounded by children’s and young adult literature, games, classroom activities, puppets, die-cut machines, and other charming distractions for when your brain is full and you need a break.

Expand your study space and study away from the crowd. Although Room 210B and the teaching aids shutter up by 10:00 PM, the CRC’s main floor closes when the library closes – which is pretty much never during Finals Week.

Come visit us. Even if it’s just to say “hi” or check out a great children’s book.
