Make time for coffee and a mince pie today

DSCF0855Getting into the festive spirit in the countdown to Christmas, library staff are inviting colleagues, staff and students to join them for coffee and a mince pie today.

For a few blissful minutes, forget your shopping list and what to buy for Auntie Jean – instead come along between 10am – 4pm, have a look round the library, relax and perhaps pick out some holiday reading for Boxing Day?

Look forward to seeing you later.
