Christmas at Newcastle Library

Food in the library?  Yes – when it’s the Carols Christmas Breakfast, held annually on Newcastle Campus for all staff.  Over one hundred staff attended the 2016 breakfast on Thursday 8th December, and enjoyed the croissants, fruit, pastries and coffee prepared and served by library staff.  Unfortunately many staff had to head straight to work after the breakfast, but a few were able to stay and sing along to traditional Christmas Carols.

As one staff member commented, “I always feel like Christmas is just around the corner, when I attend this event!”
