The week before spring finals began, the UC Merced Library hosted six Library Jam Sessions in partnership with H.E.R.O.E.S. This multi-day event took place from May 2nd -4th and included a morning and evening session each day. Students looking for a quiet space to study or relax headed to KL 371 to enjoy coffee and snacks. The first ten students at each session also received a Study Smart Kit, which included earplugs, pens, Scantrons, Green Books, etc.
A generous gift from the grandmother of a UC Merced alumna and current staff member is benefitting two undergraduate students who put the UC Merced Library to good use.
