Love Your Library Day!

Monday 14th February is Love Your Library Day at Swansea University. Come and visit us in the main Library on the Singleton campus where the staff will be celebrating the day by wearing lots of pink, handing out love-hearts and you’ll have the chance to win a teddy bear!

We want you to tell us why you Love Your Library.

Get involved!
You can do this in lots of ways:

  • Tell us what you think of the Library service. We’ll have post it notes in the foyer of the library (opposite the Costa coffee café), just write down why you Love Your Library and stick to the noticeboard!
  • We’ll have a text wall projecting in the Central Hall – just send us a text message on the 14th February telling us why you Love Your Library to 07537 402 400 and start your message with s4lib
  • Can’t make it to the Library on the 14th February? Leave us a message on Facebook or Twitter

PC room 3 will be open 10-4pm for you to pop in and try the new Assignment Survival Kit (ASK) and we’ll also have loads of cakes and refreshments for you to enjoy.
