Please leave books lying around in the library!

Yes, you heard that right. If you’ve looked at books in the library but not borrowed them, just leave them on the desk where you have been working and we’ll put them away.

Why is this important?

We will return any books through our system. Each book returned like this generates a use count. This is really useful information for library staff, as we can see which books are used in the library without being borrowed. This helps us to manage our collection appropriately.

Enjoy reshelving books?

If you’re the sort of person who usually puts books back on the shelf, try to resist this. Embrace your inner slob and leave them lying around, please!

Thanks for your cooperation.
