Welcome and Welcome Back!

Welcome and Happy September!

To all our students, old and new, we would like to invite you to join in with the ILC throughout the year, be it by taking part in events, borrowing new books, or reading this blog. We have plenty of brilliant resources that you can use and borrow, from stuffy old books on history, to, yep, Batman!

Keep an eye on our displays over the course of the year to find out what’s happening in the ILC. Our librarians are always on hand to help you find things, answer questions, and suggest great new books, so feel free to come and ask.

Enjoy the year ahead!
