Breathing Life into the Written Word – Wrap up.

During October staff and students at Newcastle Library were treated to wonderful performances by the Performing Arts students as a part of our celebration of The National Year of Reading.  The students performed dramatic readings of the written word – including readings from novels, plays and poems.

A big thankyou to all staff and students involved and to all of our audience members.


Library Craftiness

Things are getting wooly at Newcastle Campus library. Knitted stripes and flowers seem to have materialised on the entrance doors to match the wooly treats on display in the foyer:
