NEW extended weekend opening, 10am-5pm!

The Education Library will now be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10-5. This is an additional 6 hours per week, and is in response to requests from student surveys, committees and other consultations.

These longer hours start Saturday 11th February 2012 and will apply during Hilary and Trinity terms (following PGCE term dates). We hope this will make it easier for those at school in the week to come and use the library.

We hope you will all find this useful!

Kate and all in the Library
