Therapeutic Light Boxes

Posted on October 7th, 2013 by

The time that we can spend in the sun is happening less and less this time of year.  We want you to know that there are 5 therapeutic light boxes around the library.   On first, second and third floor you will find a light box in the first study carrel after the restrooms with two additional light boxes on the opposite side of the floor (Beck Hall side) on second and third floor.

Therapeutic light boxes are used to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD is a form of depression that affects many people who live in the North during the fall and winter months.
