Keeping You in the Know

Are you missing our amazing notice boards?  Fear not, you can find the current and past boards here!

We have finally reached the end of the academic year! Holidaying and trips away are back on the agenda, which calls for one thing: cooling off with a good book or relaxing with a great movie.

The library’s final virtual display of the year is dedicated to the best books and DVDs that the library has to offer!

While many of us have had plenty of time on our hands over recent weeks to get some reading time in, it’s often the last thing we think about. But, if you’re relaxing on the beach or poolside, there’s no better time to get stuck into a good book.

While of course a great summer read is down to personal preference, to give you a little bit of inspiration for your next trip, the Learning Curve have looked back through our previous book lists and picked a few from each genre, that will suit every taste. From page-turning thrillers to romantic classics, consider your reading list sorted.

All of the books on the Summer Reading list are available from the library.

 

Its summertime – the feeling is easy, it’s the perfect temperature, time is spent laying on the beach all afternoon, followed by roasting marshmallows over a campfire and staring at the stars at night. What’s the best way to end the night? Why not watch one of our fantastic movies!

The films on this list have all featured on our virtual displays, throughout the academic year. The Learning Curve have looked back through our previous film lists and picked a few from each genre, which will suit every taste. From fantastical fantasies to hiding behind a cushion horrors, consider your movie nights sorted.

All of the films on the Summer Movies list are available from the library.

We hope you have a wonderful summer break and we hope to see you again (hopefully in person) in September!

As always, if you have any comments or suggestions for future lists, please don’t hesitate to get in touch! Email: curve@barnsley.ac.uk
