Christmas Vacation Information

Dewey the elf has now left the library but he’s left behind all the information you will need for the vacation. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Flickr.

Day 1
We asked you to send us your best Christmas shELFie in the library. We had loads of fun choosing the winner. We’ll be running lots more competitions in the new year so follow us on Twitter or Facebook to take part.

Day 2
We’ve just found Dewey chilling watching BOB.
Why not join Dewey and get into the Christmas spirit with some of these classics.

Day 3
Remember your books will automatically renew unless requested by another user and you can check your account via FINDit! Watch our film to find out how.

Day 4
If you have a reservation to pick up, you still need to issue it on the self-service machines! Last day to place a request before Christmas is the 18th December.

Day 5
We hope he’s going to put these back!
Luckily, we have lots of journals & magazines at all our libraries for you to use!
We have 1000’s of online journals too, perfect for vacation study.

Day 6
Dewey thought the Librarians could do with a revamp before Christmas.
The librarians have now gone home for the holidays. You can book an appointment with them in the new year. Don’t forget we still have 24/7 chat.

Day 7
Oh no! We hope nobody was locked out!
If Dewey stops you getting access take a look at all of our other study spaces available.

Day 8
If you want to visit over the Christmas period, don’t let Dewey confuse you.
Take a look at our vacation opening hours.
All our libraries are closed Saturday 23rd December – Monday 1st January.

Day 9
If you are travelling home for Christmas, don’t forget you can still access our eBooks and electronic resources.

Day 10
Dewey demonstrating how not to use our photocopiers! Don’t forget you can print, photocopy and scan from our printers. Scanning is free.

Day 11
Dewey didn’t know he could return his books to any campus library, even The College Merthyr Tydfil. Don’t waste your time travelling, return them to the most convenient library for you. You can also select any campus to pick up your reservations. Go to our reservations page to find out how.

Day 12
Sorry study skills service Dewey is spinning out of control. It’s lucky these guides are online too!

Day 13
We have suggestion boxes at every campus Advice Zone. You can give us your feed back online if you prefer. We welcome all feedback and suggestions.

Day 14
Your books will continue to renew over Christmas between 14th December – 8th January. So you can take longer to enjoy your books – just like Dewey!

Day 15
Dewey has brought so much joy (and chaos) to our libraries, but he’s had to leave to report back to Santa. We hope you’ve all been good whilst we were under elf surveillance!
Enjoy the holidays from all the library staff (and Dewey of course!)
