Taking Action Changing Lives : Libraries Week 4-10 October 2021
It’s Libraries week again and this year we are celebrating the best that libraries have to offer. We are looking at how Libraries are drivers for inclusion, sustainability, social mobility and community cohesion. It’s all about how libraries are “taking action, changing lives”.
Here at Napier University Library, we try to play our part.
We are proud to have run food donation drives for our local food bank, Edinburgh North West Foodbank.
Furthermore to help support our student’s mental health and wellbeing we have created a relaxation zone where they can escape from studying and take time out. We have produced a green space filled with games, colouring, magazines and books. Similarly, we have also created an online relaxation space here on our blog for you to use when you cannot be in the Library.
We also offer many services to help our students study such as offering a postal loans service, and in addition during the Pandemic a click and collect service on books. Not to mention buying thousands of eBooks to help our students study at home.
Staff at the Library are trained to be inclusive and considerate of all the people we come into contact with. We have even held the Customer Service Award for Excellence for over 10 years.
Above all, we try to consistently improve our services to make sure we offer ways to be more inclusive and considerate of all our users.
So Happy Libraries Week to everyone out there! We all hope you continue to love and appreciate Libraries everywhere.
