Easter Break Loans

Don’t forget that rolling renewals on your books continue throughout the Easter break.

Rolling renewals means that any books you have borrowed will be automatically renewed until someone else reserves them.

You will receive an email from to your student account to let you know if you need to return a book, and the date to return it by.

Please help other students by:

  • returning books on time if you get a recall email
  • checking return dates on your Library account

You will be subject to a fine if you don't return an item which has been recalled by the Library. This is so we can make sure as many people as possible get to borrow our items.

Fines aren’t charged during the weekend or on bank holidays.

Maker Zone at All Saints Library

All Saints Library will be hosting an after-hours Maker Zone on the 5th Floor ahead of the deadlines for upcoming creative coursework tasks.

We know students use the Library to complete creative tasks like posters and portfolios, and we often find leftover paper, materials and glue on the carpet. We want to support our students while helping cleaning and Library staff, so we’ve provided an area for creative tasks to be completed:

  • The Maker Zone will be on the 5th Floor in the lowered area at the back of the room
  • It will be designated as a Maker Zone from 6pm – 6am
  • There will be signs in the area, and additional recycling bins in the space
  • You need your ID card to get into the Library
  • Materials will not be provided

In return for providing the area we ask that you:

  • Dispose of all rubbish in the bins provided
  • Don’t use paint, liquid glue, sprays, glitter, scalpels or anything that will mark surfaces
  • Provide feedback on the feedback walls in the area

Students are fine to use:

  • Paper/Card
  • Scissors
  • Pens/Pencils/Felt Tips/Markers/Crayons
  • Sellotape
  • Solid Glue eg Pritt Stick
