BookCrossing launched!

Debbie Smyth (Imago) and Sharon Reid (Library) launch the BookCrossing scheme

Calling all book-lovers! BookCrossing, the leisure reading phenomenon designed  to encourage us all to read for pleasure has been launched on-campus. The Library, with the support of Imago, has placed wicker boxes of donated novels in three food-outlets: the Village Bar, Fuel Box (EHB) and Martin Hall Bistro. Look out for them!

Designed as a ‘read me then release’ me scheme, the way it works is that you take any book you fancy, then, once you’ve finished reading it, pass it on for someone else to enjoy. To add to the fun, every book has been given its own ID number, so you can track its journey via the website.

To keep the scheme rolling we need more books! So, if you have any leisure reading books you’re happy to ‘release’, we’d really like to have them. We need your good quality novels (including graphic), and biographies/autobiographies/memoirs. Please drop them off at the Library and mention that they’re for the BookCrossing scheme.

Happy reading!
