Atrium, Post Learning Commons
The Francis A. Drexel Library and the Learning Resource Center are happy to welcome back dogs from Therapy Dogs International for a day of de-stressing!

Isn’t it hard to believe it’s been a year since the John and Maryanne Hennings Post Learning Commons opened its doors?
The Post Learning Commons has become such an integral part of campus life that it seems like it’s been here all along.
The impact of the Post Learning Commons is astounding in just its first year –
- student library usage is up by 70 percent,
- we have exceeded 77,000 visitors in one month,
- nearly one in four students visits four or more times a week,
And most importantly, our students have made this special place their own.
To celebrate this milestone for the University, please join us for Birthday Cake on Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 1 p.m. in the atrium of John R. Post ’60 Academic Center.

Research indicates that petting a dog lowers stress levels. The Post Academic Center and the Learning Resource Center are hosting a group of dogs from Therapy Dogs International.

Wednesday, October 10 is our SnapShot PA day!
Staff from the Post Learning Commons and Drexel Library will be “snapping” a shot of the library’s activities that day. SnapShot PA is a state-wide project to capture information about library usage and services.
Library staff will take photos, collect information and stories, and compile data regarding library usage that day.
