Reasons to Love your Library #5: Extras

by Jo Harcus on 12 February 2016


Cherry topped dessertAs a certain supermarket once said “every little helps”, so we thought we’d end the week by reminding you of the small things we offer to help make your lives that little bit easier and brighter.

Behind the Library counter you’ll find our handy bookrests and mini whiteboards. Don’t forget to enter your shelfie or book spine poems into our Love your Library Week prize draw to win a bookrest of your very own (see Tuesday’s blog post for details).

To encourage the whole College community to come together and take a break we host a cake sale once a term to raise money for charities including Guide Dogs, Macmillan Cancer Support and the Madaya Emergency Appeal. If there’s a charity you’d like to support we’d love to hear from you. 

We and the Students’ Union are also excited to announce the return of our art and photography competition for 2016. Entries are welcomed from students, staff, Fellows and alumnae on the theme of ‘Community’. The deadline for entries is 5pm on 19 April. Further details coming soon! In the meantime, check out last year’s winning entries hung in the Group Study Room.

During Easter Term we’ll also be offering the following little extras to help ease the pressure that exams and writing up can bring:

  • Help yourself to a free pair of earplugs from the Library counter
  • Remember to take regular breaks and join us for Extra Elevenses every Tuesday at 3pm. We’ll also be offering our regular helping of Elevenses every Thursday at 11am
  • Get creative and unwind with our colouring in and jigsaw puzzles. Don’t forget to head down to the comfy area in the basement to design a bookmark to win a Lucy Cavendish College water bottle in our Love your Library Week prize draw

We’re always looking for new and improved ways to help you make the most of your College Library so please continue to add your comments and suggestions to our Feedback Wall in the foyer. This week, pin your love or break up letters to the wall in the Library or post them online to tell us what you like about using the Library or what we could do differently. We look forward to hearing from you!

We hope you’ve enjoyed Love your Library Week as much as we have and remember to check out #LuvLucyLib for some of the week’s highlights, including this…
