Q. Why can't we leave books out on desks overnight?

Thank you for completing a ‘You said, we did’ feedback card.

I’m afraid we simply don’t have the space to allow students to leave books overnight, thereby reserving the space for the next day. This could easily lead to books and other items being left for indefinite periods of time which would be an ineffective use of our study spaces. In addition if books were not checked out then other library users would not be able to locate them and if they were checked out they could simply picked up and removed by anyone.

We have lockers available for rent and books can be checked out and stored in the locker for use on an ongoing basis.

best wishes
