Enjoy a Picnic on National Picnic Day

National Picnic Day is today, and the library has everything you will need to make it the best picnic ever.

How can you have a picnic without some great food? Checkout a cookbook to get some recipes ideas!

Try a Balsamic Strawberry Arugula Salad that will be light and delicious on a spring day that comes from How to Cook Everything Vegetarian:

Take some pictures to help commemorate the moment, so check out one of our cameras to capture the moment!

Even if it rains, don’t let the rain stop your fun, check out a Brookens umbrella!

But if the weather is nice, then check out one of our Ollie‘s! A fun little remote controlled robot that can do some cool tricks.

If you don’t know of any good spots for a picnic, here are some suggestions for places on campus – the Main Quad, the quad between Lincoln Residence Hall and Founders Residence Hall, and the UIS Pond.

There are plenty of other scenic places around campus and around Springfield to have beautiful picnic. This Google Map has even more suggestions.

Come to the library to prepare for a great picnic (while respecting social distancing guidelines)!
