Exams got you tense? Then take a break with the Libraries’ livestreams on Twitch!

The Libraries is concentrating on exam week wellness with special Twitch programming on May 2-7. Anyone can tune in to learn a new skill, play a game, get a quick dose of pet therapy, or hear some great tunes. The full week’s programming is detailed below.

You don’t have to have a free Twitch account to tune into the livestreams. If you do have an account, you can send questions and comments in the live chat. Recordings of Libraries streams are available on our Twitch page after each event.
