Study & Work Break: Colouring

If you need a break from studying for exams or a coffee break from work, we have both virtual and in-person colouring opportunities for you!

Come by the Archer Alcove to enjoy the beautiful colouring designs above (there’s also a coffee machine, and comfy chairs throughout the library!).

Studying online or working from home? Check out our digital and printable colouring pages on the Library Leisure guide (there are also more colouring pages on some of the celebrations tabs, a couple of samples below!).
General Colouring:

Take care, and happy colouring!

Podcast Picks from Kaetlyn Phillips

Many of our librarians and staff listen to numerous podcasts on an amazing variety of topics, and today we have a listening recommendation from librarian Kaetlyn Phillips:

“When podcasts hosts proudly call themselves “Methodology Queens,” I know I’m going to be interested! Maintenance Phase, hosted by Aubrey Gordon and Michael Hobbes, is a scathing and hilarious look at the diet and wellness industry. The hosts break down bad research, bad data, and common stereotypes about all our favourite and hated fad diets and exercise plans. Great for people who love deep dive research podcasts. However, if diet and wellness talk is triggering, check out You’re Wrong About or Sawbones for similar diet-free content.”
