After a semester that’s felt like a year and a year that’s felt more like four, the University Libraries feel you deserve this hard-earned winter break. Maybe that looks like hitting the slopes, trying a new recipe or Zooming with family and friends.

We’re looking forward to recharging with all of those activities too. But it’s no secret that some days, all we want is to curl up in an armchair in front of a fireplace (real or virtual) with a fleece blanket and a mug of hot cocoa to indulge in several hours of bingeable media dreamscapes.

As we settle in for the holidays, we hope you’ll find company in an ebook exploring fictional universes, a soundtrack that will have you imagining alternate realities or paying a visit to the small town of Schitt’s Creek. Here we offer escapist winter media recommendations, curated by the libraries, for you.
