Summer in the Gateway Library

The Summer holidays are here, the students are (mostly) away and the Gateway library is eerily quiet. The books are all shelved, the computer screens are blank, tumbleweed rolls across the deserted expanse of the 2nd floor. So, what are the library staff getting up to? Are we all in the back office with our feet up reading the latest novels? No! Perish the thought! There’s always someone on the Service Desk, someone to answer to the phones, someone keeping an eye on the emails and we still staff ‘Ask a Librarian’ from 10am to 4pm every weekday. It’s also our time for stock-taking, disposal of outdated stock to make room for lovely new books and generally catching up with all the jobs we can’t do when the library is full of students. We’re very busy, honest. Drop in and say hello, it’s lovely & quiet and we have air conditioning!
