What is Night Owls?

Night Owls is The Claremont Colleges Library's finals week programming, activities, and events. At the end of every semester since 2015, our goal has been to provide opportunities for brain breaks, snack breaks, de-stressing, and relaxation while working on final exams and projects. 

For Fall 2023, we are excited to offer longstanding programs such as Craft Night and Owl See You in the Stacks to help you incorporate breaks into your time spent at the Library, as well as offer events that set you up for success during finals, such as Fireside Writing and Stop & Breathe (30 minutes of light stretching and deep relaxation).
