Therapy Dogs at the Science Library on April 23

Therapy Dogs 2015

A “Therapy Dogs” event on April 23 will officially launch Stress Less UAlbany @ Your Libraries, a multitude of stress-reducing events and activities the UAlbany Libraries will be providing during finals.
Therapy dogs from the Schenectady Chapter of Therapy Dogs International will work their healing magic on April 23, 2015 from 1pm - 3 pm in the Science Library Atrium (garden level).

Therapy dogs are specially trained and socialized by volunteers to provide comfort to people who are ill or experiencing stress. Studies of Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT), the official terminology for therapy dogs, suggest that therapy animals lower stress levels in humans in a variety of settings, including colleges and universities. What is more, therapy dogs rival conventional stress management programs in reducing anxiety, depression, and even pain. 1

“The University Libraries are pleased to host the therapy dogs,” says Amanda Lowe, Information Commons Evening Coordinator. “Interacting with therapy dogs provides a stress-relieving study break for stressed-out UAlbany students completing final projects and studying for exams. Therapy dogs are always enthusiastically received on campus.”
After the April 23 event, Stress Less UAlbany @ Your Libraries will gain momentum with more stress-reducing activities and events such as yoga, puzzles, and cartoon shorts, beginning on Monday, May 4 and continuing through Thursday, May 14.
“Therapy Dogs” will be the only Stress Less UAlbany @ Your Libraries event that will take place at the Science Library. All remaining Stress Less UAlbany @ Your Libraries events and activities will be held at the University Library.
In addition to events and activities, stress balls will be available at the University Library’s Circulation Desk.

The Stress Less UAlbany @Your Libraries activities will coincide with extended hours during finals at the University and Science Libraries. For details, see:  http://library.albany.edu/about/hours?source=widget.
