Thank YOU!

Great to see so many returns popping into the library return box.

We are open until 23 December (although not open any more Wednesday evenings this year)

so still plenty of time to drop in, return your books, and tie up any loose ends :-)

Have a great holiday time!


Semester Two begins today!

Looking forward to working with all the new and returning Renwick students and staff.

Don't forget you can email the library at  renwick.library@ridbc.org.au

or phone (02) 9872 0285

with any queries about course readings, catalogue searches or electronic resources.

Postal loans, documents supplied by email... all free services to Renwick Centre students.

Local students are also invited to use the library during the evening on Wednesdays until 8pm during semester time.

 


Thank you to all our students returning borrowed items

For those eager readers who like to be well-prepared for Semester Two, library services continue throughout the Inter-Semester Break.

However, Wednesday evenings will not be available until semester 2, except by special arrangement for campus conferences.

Perhaps now is the time to read that interesting book you saw on the library shelves but were too busy with assignments to read?

Place a hold on the book and we will slip it into the post!
