EXAM STRESS KITS FOR STUDENTS. Waterloo Public Library logo.

FREE Exam Stress Kits for Students Are Now Available at all WPL Locations

It's exam season and we know that can mean a lot of extra stress for students. We want to help make your day just a bit better so we've put together little Exam Stress Kits full of goodies to help you make it through those intense study sessions.

If you're using one of our library locations to study, simply let a staff member know you're a student to receive your free Exam Stress Kit (while supplies last).
