LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 3, 2018) University of Kentucky Libraries will host a week of open houses at many of its campus locations Oct. 7-12 just in time to help students gear up for midterms.

In addition to browsing thought-provoking exhibits and displays, featuring some of UK Libraries more unique collections, students will have a chance to be connected to important library services and resources that can aid success on exams, projects and papers. The open houses will also be a great opportunity for students to scope out new spaces for enjoying a bit of solitude or engaging socially with peers from all disciplines.

And because every happy (open) house needs a dog, UK Libraries has joined forces with UK4Paws to offer a bit of puppy magic during this busy and stressful time. In addition, there will be fun activities and free snacks each day. Students who visit each location will also be eligible for a chance to win a gift basket with UK swag.

UK Libraries open house schedule will be as follows:

UK Libraries comprises nine major facilities spanning campus: William T. Young Library, Agricultural Information Center, Hunter M. Adams College of Design Library, Education Library, John A. Morris Equine Library and Information Services, Lucille C. Little Fine Arts Library and Learning Center, Medical Center Library, Science and Engineering Library and the Special Collections Research Center. UK Libraries also manages the Lexmark Library.
