Christmas Hamper & Money For Glebe House

Once again you have all been very generous. We have put together a Christmas food hamper and raised money for Glebe House.  This is a fantastic facility offering support to our students.

We have raised £62.03p; some of this was from sales of our handmade festive decorations and some was from donations to our book exchange.

Our Gift Tree was once again a big success. People could take handmade baubles from the tree and in return donate the item printed on it (biscuits, chocolate etc) to the hamper.

Many thanks for your generosity and support.

The Library team wish all students and staff a very Merry Christmas.

On it you will find handmade baubles, these are made from damaged or out of date books; on the bauble you will see something written(food items or toiletries)simply take a bauble for your own tree and leave the item in the hamper under the tree.

The hamper is for the students who use Glebe House at our Nuneaton campus. Help make Christmas special for these students and get a unique bauble for your own tree.

 

We are also selling handmade decorations and mini Christmas trees. The trees are £3.00 each. The other decorations are 50p each. All money received goes to Glebe House.

 

Please speak to staff if you want to buy something. Merry Christmas.  🙂

 

 

 

Reading Ahead 2016/17

reading-ahead-displayThere is still time to take part in the Reading Ahead Challenge. The aim is to get you to read six things, this doesn’t just have to be books, it could be magazines or even newspaper articles.  You will get a reading diary and will need to write a review of what you have read.

This is a fun way to encourage reading, it’s also beneficial for those who don’t get enough reading time.

When you’ve completed your diary you get a certificate. There are also prizes along the way! You can sign up now to take the challenge in the Nuneaton campus Library.

We only have 10 places left, so if you are interested come and see us in the Nuneaton campus Library.

We hope those currently undertaking the challenge enjoy doing so.
