Wednesday 29 November was an unusual afternoon at the Library. We had 25 dogs, one cat and a huge crowd of students with us on Level 3 of the Main Library. The professional team of therapy pets from “Doctor Pet” paid a visit to us for a special session to help alleviate the stress of the busiest period of the semester when everyone is working hard on assignments and preparing for examinations.
We hope that this was a great way to put a different face on the Library: to show students we care about their mental well-being. We hope that they were able to relax, and relieve their assignment and examination jitters for a little while. The visit from Doctor Pet was an opportunity to take a quick break from studying.
