Come visit the libraries and see…
What delights lie behind the cover of an unopened book?
What adventures could you embark upon, and what new things you will learn, by simply turning the pages one by one?
Who’ll be hiding there amongst the pages, friend or foe you’ve never seen or met before, or someone that seems a little familiar to you, someone you know?
What places will your imagination create and visit? what other delights
and challenges will you overcome and experience?
OR will you just delve into something academic?
To learn and expand your understanding & knowledge of your subject area?
But this can be done in so many ways, by firing your imagination and taking the plunge outside of your comfort zone.
Working together in a group study area or having a quiet conversation, exchanging ideas whilst searching the web to cross-reference.
Will you delve into something new, or just dip in your toe?
There’s so much to choose from, drama, thriller, horror, fantasy or an autobiography and maybe even a little poetry, to mention a few.
Then there’s all the academic books and journals, shelf help and DVDs too. The list is pretty much endless I believe.
Will you find an interesting new genre to read, a new favourite writer, who knows?
Will you carry your books in your bag remembering to self-issue them?
Or choose to read them online instead?
Will you use the library catalogue with exact search terms to narrow and focus your search?
Or maybe not to broaden the results to see what else comes up or falls into that category of yours?
Will you ask for help if you’re unsure of what to do, to find what you’re looking for?
We promise we’ll do our best to assist.
Will you chop and change your study environment, find what suits you best, or choose to work from home?
I’ll leave that decision up to you.
But do come to visit the library and see what you could read to broaden your mind and how the environment has changed and is different from a long, long time ago.
