Fresh Start for 2022

Get to know the Library better and let us know how to make you feel more welcome during the Fresh Start Festival.

January’s the perfect time to reset and start afresh. So, to help you kick this term off the right way, we’re taking part in the Fresh Start Festival – a week of free activities from Monday 24 to Sunday 30 January packed full of food, fun, friends and opportunities.

This is your chance to get to know the Library, find your favourite spot to study and learn how we can help you to develop your academic skills.

Take the chance to get a guided tour of the our libraries. You’ll learn all about the various different kinds of study spaces, how to find the books you need and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask any questions.
