- Dacus recently bought two FitDesks, joining colleges and universities around the country in offering their students the chance to read and cycle simultaneously.
- The stationary bikes, which are light and collapsible, are located on the first floor near the reference desk so staff members can monitor their usage.
- Studies show that exercise increases blood flow and oxygen to the brain and improves cognitive functioning.
