Have a good vacation!


It’s almost the end of term- hope all our finalists get good results, and everyone else has a good vacation!

Tomorrow (Saturday 18th June) we’ll be open 10 am til 1 pm, but after that we’re into vacation opening hours. So from Monday we’ll be open 9:15 am to 5 pm Monday-Friday, and closed all weekend.


Summer Vacation Loans


We’re now in 7th week, the penultimate week of term. All books that are taken out from now onwards will be for the entire summer vacation- they’re due back on Monday 1st week, 11th October 2010.

Also, we’d like to wish good luck to any of our readers currently doing exams! Hope they go well…
