New Service: Light Therapy Lamps!

This weekend marks the end of Daylight Savings Time and after enjoying a little extra sleep, the reality will set in that we are destined for short days and long nights for the next several months. Bentley Library is excited to announce that we have added light therapy lamps to our collection in order to help combat those winter blues! Light therapy lamps mimic sun light and are thought to help improve moods and increase energy leading to having  better focus and being more productive.

Our lamps can be circulated for up to 2 hours (although it is suggested that 20-30 minutes in front of the light will do the trick!) and connect to your computer via USB making it easy for you to get a little extra light while you’re studying in the library. You will be able to choose your lux level and even set a timer so you know when you've had the appropriate boost. Check our website here to see when the lamps are available or just stop by the Circulation Desk to check one out!
