    Overdue Library Books
    by Paula Ward (Staff) - Thursday, 22 March 2018, 6:16 PM

    We currently have over 100 very overdue library books, which we would ideally like back by the end of term at the very latest (Thursday 29th March).  There are no fines and you won’t be in trouble no matter how late the book is; we would just like the books back because, in some cases, other students are waiting for them.

     Please have a good look at home and bring your books back to the Library asap!

    Thank you.
