Celebrate Reading and You Could be a Winner at Gosford Library!





Gosford Campus Library is celebrating the National Year of Reading, Book Week, National Literacy & Numeracy Week, and Adult Learner’s Week with a bunch of events for staff and students. 

Library Competition : 16th August – 14th September

Recommend your favourite book and you might win a prize!  All entries will go in the draw.  Students can win one of five $20 gift vouchers from Dymocks Bookshop.  Staff will go into the draw for a ‘Mystery Prize’.  For further details, including how to enter, ask Gosford Library staff.

Book Swap : 20th August – 31st August

We’re asking students and staff to bring in a book you own that you no longer want to keep, and swap it for another!  The books will be available in the paperback stand outside the library (in the lounge area).  You can leave your book there and take another to read.

Poetry Reading : Wednesday 5th September, 12:30pm

Please bring along a favourite poem (or part of a long poem) and share it in the Library.  And as a bonus – everyone who reads a poem will get an additional entry in the Library Competition.  All welcome!

Library Holiday Hours

The holidays are nearly here! The TAFE vacation period is from Monday 26th September – Friday 7th October. Some libraries will be closed, or open only for part of the vacation period. Click here to check the opening hours for your campus Library over the break.

Going away? Most Libraries let you return your books after the holidays, but please check with Library staff. Also, please make sure that you have renewed your items if you need to do so.

Remember that you can renew your items online, via TAFEcat. To do this, you will need to get your PIN number from Library staff. Once we have given you a PIN number, you can log in and change it to something that you will easily remember.
