Book Giveaway - Withdrawn Library Books - Friday 7th August

The library is organising Book Giveaways during 2015 to give you the opportunity to obtain withdrawn books for your personal collection.
The next giveaway is Friday 7th August, 12:15pm-3pm on Level 3 (North side) of the Central Library, Puaka-James Hight building.

Book Giveaway
The new owner is the first person who wants the book.
Please bring your own bags to take the books away.

A book is in the giveaway because:

  • It no longer meets the demands of the course or research it was purchased for, or

  • Fewer copies of the title are now required, or

  • It is damaged and has been replaced, or

  • It was donated but does not meet the "in scope" criteria for learning, teaching and research at UC.

There will be another giveaway on Friday 18th September

Please don't leave your personal belongings unattended in the Library

in particular laptops, cellphones, wallets and backpacks. Unattended belongings attract thieves, and while many believe the risk to be small, it is real and such a loss can be devastating. Even for short trips to the copier, printer, or toilets, take them with you or have a friend sitting next to you watch them while you're gone. The library is not responsible for the loss of personal belongings.
