It’s been a wild semester for many of us, and we could all use a paws to catch our breath. What better way than to scroll through endless streams of internet pets? The University Libraries want to make this easy by bringing the cute pets to you!
Cue Pause for Paws, a series of virtual pet programming for CU Boulder students in need of some extra pawsitivity in the coming weeks. Get to know the libraries’ pets and humans for the rest of the semester.
Join librarians and their pets for Pawffice Hours, where students can Zoom with librarians and meet their furry family members. We invite you and your own furry friends to join us. We’ll casually chat about the pleasure pets bring especially in stressful times. You’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate your pet trivia knowledge. Please drop-in any time for a pause in your studies, November 30 - December 11 from 1 - 3:30.
For two weeks, the libraries’ pets are taking over the CU Boulder Libraries’ social media accounts! Look for pet-themed media, inspiration and advice from the home offices of librarians and petfluencers, get to know the library pets and their humans and vote for the MVPs (Most Valuable Pets). Be sure to follow us on Instagram to get to know the candidates and vote.
CU Boulder librarians have also curated a series of media that dives deep into pet-obsessed American culture. Explore ebooks on cats and dogs, live pet cams and select videos to stream from our collections. Here you’ll also find links to podcasts on all things pets, calming music, apps and more.
