  • Change to Bay Library opening hours – 13th and 14th October 2017

    This Saturday (14th October), there will be an Open Day and a visit by Hillary Rodham Clinton to Bay Campus. In order to facilitate the large number of expected visitors and to maintain security, there will be some changes to parking, bus routes and building access at Bay Campus this weekend. This includes access to Bay Library, which will close at 5pm Friday and re-open by 9pm on Saturday. Please check library Twitter and Facebook accounts for further updates.

    We apologise for any inconvenience this causes. Our other libraries remain open as usual, though please do remember the Open Day includes Singleton Park Campus, so the library and campus may be busy with visitors. If you are traveling to or from Bay Campus or Singleton Park Campus on Saturday, please check the Open Day travel information.

  • Welcome back returning students!

    Welcome back to our returning students! We hope you enjoyed your summer break. There have been a few changes to Bay Library while you’ve been away:

    In response to student feedback, we have brought together the library printers in a new Print Zone in the central area of the library. You can now go straight to the Print Zone for any printing, photocopying or scanning you need to do instead of searching the whole library for a printer that’s available.

    8 more PCs have been installed in the library.

    We have rearranged the library slightly to create 36 extra study spaces overlooking the study well in the central area of the library. We also have some new mobile tables to create a more flexible study space.

    The Wellbeing Collection and our newspapers have moved to a new corner by the Group Pod. There is also some careers information in this area. The area is for quiet reading and relaxation.

    The Book Swap has moved to the self-service café area. Please help yourself if you see something you’d like to read, but try to bring a book back to replace it!

    We hope you like the changes. If you have any comments or feedback, please let us know. There is a suggestion box in the library, or our contact details are available on the library website.
