Midterm Study Sessions Set for High Schoolers
What constitutes a good study environment? A comfortable chair and plenty of table space? Easy access to the Internet so you can use Moodle or log on to databases? Plenty of coffee, water and snacks on-hand to refuel your energy reserves? If any of these are on your list, the Ridgefield Library has you covered. We know that high school midterm exams are just around the corner, and we want to help students do their best. The Library will turn over the entire Dayton Program Room to high schoolers who are studying for midterms on Saturday, January 23 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and on Sunday, January 24 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. We will set up tables and chairs so students can study in groups, or alone. We will provide drinks and snacks for energy. Students can access the Library’s free wifi should they want to use their laptops. The entire time, a librarian will be on duty to lend a hand with reference queries. We know that quiet space is at a premium and working at home with younger siblings may not lead to the most productive study time, so we are happy to help out.
