Ready your wands—The Final Perk is here!

Perk Presto!
Wizard-themed Final Perk

Need to take a breather from hitting the books this semester? Get ready for another fun-filled Final Perk, the Bender Library’s semiannual study break. The event will take place Wednesday, 12/12/12, from 7 to 8:30pm in The Mud Box café, located on the lower level of the library. This semester’s Perk Presto will transport attendees from the library to a cozy castle with complimentary coffee, drinks, and cookies for all visitors. This semester’s event will feature gluten-free and vegan dessert options as well.

While munching, test your wizardry knowledge with Final Perk’s trivia game—from Harry Potter to Gandalf, we’ve got a question for you! Come in costume to enter our costume contest. There will be great prizes and fun giveaways for all. Once there, use our props to pose for magically fun pictures in the photo booth, and be sure to keep an eye out for a possible appearance by Dumblesheep! All students are welcome, so bring yourself, a study buddy, or a group of friends to Perk Presto!

This marks the eighth academic year that the library has sponsored this end-of-semester study break, along with important partners, including the Mud Box Café, Friends of AU Library, Student Government, Graduate Leadership Council, Student Activities, and the Residence Hall Association. The library is also excited to welcome the American University Alumni Association as a new partner for this event.
