Running from the 21st – 25th January, Personal Development Week is a great opportunity for you to develop new skills that could be key to your academic success and prepare you for your future career. We have a wide range of events, activities and workshops planned. Here’s what we have in store:
The holidays will soon be upon us and we hope you enjoy the winter break. However, you might be thinking about studying and borrowing items over the holidays, here’s what you need to know.
During periods where you have a large amount of work to do for your course, you may find the library becomes your second home.
While sometimes you might want to work in silence by yourself, other times you might benefit from group work, or maybe you just want to socialise with your friends while looking over some notes. The library has created designated zones so that you can study in a way that suits your studying style, and caters to your needs, without disrupting others.
“Librarians took me in. They gave me stories. I discovered Mirkwood and climbed an Oak Tree with Bilbo Baggins and saw an armada of black butterflies fluttering above the tree tops. I went in search of more” – Chris Riddell, from “Life Changing Books or Librarians I Have Loved…a Love Letter”.
Welcome to Canterbury Public Library. We offer free access to books and computers, hire of music, audiobooks and films.
Below you can read a typical day in the life of me, a customer service assistant, so you can get a feel for the type of things we do. For the full immersive experience, imagine wearing an orange T-Shirt (It’s Orange Wednesdays and Thursdays and Fridays and Saturdays and Mondays and Tuesdays for us…but it’s good, because you know where we are if you need us).
This October we are proud to support Black History Month; the annual commemoration of the history, achievements and contributions of black people in the UK.
We are celebrating great black British achievers across the whole month. Here is what we have planned.
The Library LRS team are mostly based in Canterbury Augustine House library, but you might spot us out and about as we work with all staff and students across all the campuses! We are composed of subject-specialist and research Librarians who support you in developing the information and digital skills that you need to do well at university; Academic Learning Advisors who help you to develop your academic skills; and the Academic English Service who supports you if English is not your first language.
