Take a break in the Zen Zone
If you find yourself in need of a mental break or some quiet relaxation, visit the Zen Zone! Located on the first floor of Kelvin Smith Library by Cramelot Cafe and our Leisure Reading, this area is specifically designated to provide students with opportunities to take meaningful breaks to reinvigorate their minds and bodies. Students can engage in chair stretches, coloring pages, puzzles, games, complete gratitude journaling, plan their day with task lists, and "take what you need" encouragement cards.
The “Ask KSL” feature
You may see this button saying “Ask A Librarian” or “Ask KSL” throughout the library website, as seen on the home page, the research tab, in the A-Z list of databases, and several other places.
