Just in time for finals and the last week of classes, the Alexandria Campus Library will once again offer extended opportunities for study and research:

The Library will be open an extra hour in the evenings of May 24 - 27, closing at 10pm.

Don't miss study break snacks in the evenings, pancake parties in the mornings, and de-stress activities such as origami, puzzles and coloring all day long!

(Thanks to the Office of Student Live and the Destress4Success club for partnering to sponsor these activities).

STEM Day comes to the Library

On Saturday 1 April the Alexandria Campus celebrated NOVA STEM Day.  The campus welcomed over 300 neighbors and community partners to a day full of activities and events.

In the Library, visitors explored the mathematics of paper folding (and the promise of the science of folding, for more see The Origami Revolution,  and also of course the ecology of butterflies), producing hundreds of paper butterflies currently taking flight:

STEM attendees also had an opportunity to learn about the role of aquatic grasses in nurturing the health of the Chesapeake Bay, and enjoyed hands-on algae abatement activities.

Visit YOUR Library today to watch our grass grow, or see our butterflies fly!
