Did you know that the library has portable power stations for you to check out? These batteries allow you to plug in and sit in places that don’t have a convenient power source.

Take one to class, to the quad, to your favorite quiet spot in the library! Charge up and stop worrying about plugging in.

Ask for the portable power station at the Library Circulation Desk. They circulate for four hours, and will help you POWER THROUGH Spring Quarter!
