We know that Saint Martin's students work hard. But keeping your nose to the grindstone without coming up for a break is no way to live. So when your work is done and Netflix and YouTube have ceased to entertain you -- because really, there are only so many episodes of "Jersey Shore," "True Blood," and skateboarding cat videos that a person can sanely watch in a day -- check out some good times from your friendly public library.
Especially convenient for students living on campus, the Lacey branch of the Timberland Regional Library (TRL) is right across the street from Saint Martin's. However, no matter where you live in the area, there is probably a branch near you.
