Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children. - George Bernard Shaw

Dear 100 Hour Board,

As usual, I'm freezing my butt off in the library (again). Do you have any recommendations for warm study areas? Anywhere in the library would be nice, but I'm open to other places, too.

Dear Grandpa,

If you're not already, I strongly recommend being prepared for the Utah winter weather and wearing coats and sweaters. Novel concept, I know. If it's really bad, you can probably snag a locker in the HBLL and store a nice study blanket in there. 

But if you really don't want to bring any of those to school, I've found the warmest buildings seem to be the TMCB, the McKay, and the JKB. Anywhere that has carpet and darker walls will also feel warmer than places with tile and white walls. The basement of the HBLL feels warmer to me than the other floors, but I'm pretty sure they intentionally keep the whole building way too cold to keep the students awake... it's not working. 

Cheers and warm thoughts, 




Bring a blanket with you wherever you go. At the very least bring a snuggie. If anyone says anything negative about it they're just trying to hide their feelings of jealousy.

There is a working fireplace in periodicals, on the second floor of the HBLL. You have to get pretty close, but don't be embarrassed about pulling a chair right up to the edge and putting your feet on the hearth.
