Six pop-up library events introduce resources and collections to LEAP students


A pop-up library will greet Penn State students participating in the Learning Edge Academic Program (LEAP) for six afternoons this summer as the University Libraries introduce its services and resources. All pop-up library events will be held weekly from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. beginning Thursday, July 6, in the Redifer Commons lobby area on the University Park campus.

Each week, the pop-up library will feature collections, titles and items from various subject libraries and units as well as from University Libraries’ leisure reading and viewing collections. Penn State students can also learn about the Libraries’ extensive online resources such as academic journals, databases and the Ask A Librarian service.

The six dates for the pop-up library events are:

  • Thursday, July 6
  • Thursday, July 13
  • Thursday, July 20
  • Thursday, July 27
  • Wednesday, Aug. 2
  • Thursday, Aug. 10

Free coffee and snacks will be provided at the special pop-up library event on Aug. 10, similar to the Libraries’ DeStress Fest held at the end of each semester.
