Library shows appreciation for student patrons

A cookie tastes a little sweeter when it’s free, says Lindsay Thompson.

The second-year kinesiology major was one of hundreds of UWindsor students to enjoy a freebie from the Leddy Library on Tuesday.

Librarians distributed free cookies, coffee and tea as a goodwill gesture to students preparing for final examinations. Sales of decommissioned books helped to pay for the event.

“It’s awesome,” said second-year environmental science student Colette Drouillard. “It’s very nice for them to do this for us. Plus, I like free stuff!”

Karen Pillon, head of the library’s access services department, said the students appreciated the consideration.

“It’s worth it to put a smile on their faces at this stressful time,” she said. “We’re certainly hearing a lot of thank-you’s.”
