As the summer approaches, the Library Staff wants to make the Library as comfortable as possible for current graduate student members and members studying for exams. Last year, the Library offered a number of events to serve Current Graduate students. The most popular offerings proved to be our interdisciplinary writing group, dedicated study space, and (not surprisingly) Happy Hours. So, we are bringing them all back this year. Check out our offerings below (and some books, while you’re at it).
Mondays are Quiet Group Study Days in the Clarence Day Room
Starting Monday, June 6, the Clarence Day Room is reserved from 11:30 am – 3:00 pm exclusively for graduate students working or members studying for exams. Working on the extended writing projects that consume graduate students or preparing for exams can be an isolating experience, but you don’t have to be alone. Every Monday spread out in the Clarence Day Room, surrounded by the yearbooks of Yalies past and get some work done in a supportive environment. Better yet, get to know other members who are in similar positions – share your work and your stories.
Join us Mondays through Labor Day: 11:30 am – 3:00 pm.
Monthly Current Graduate Student Happy Hours
Are you a current graduate student or preparing to enter graduate school in the fall? Join us on 44th & Terrace for our monthly summer happy hours. Meet other graduate students over a drink and some shared plates. The first drink and small plates are compliments of the Library Committee. Space is limited; please RSVP on the Club calendar.
Join Us from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm.

Graduate Student Interdisciplinary Writing Groups
The interdisciplinary writing group at the Yale Club of New York City is a project of the Current Students Working Group, however, the group is open to all members of the Yale Club who are working on scholarly writing projects. The goal of this writing group is to provide members with a supportive environment to develop projects and ideas and to allow them the benefit of working with experts in other disciplines as a way of deepening their work.
Contact the Christina Kasman, Librarian if you are interested in joining a writing group; details on meetings will be sent to those who express interest.
