As the country moves slowly back to normal, and pubs, shops, and hairdressers reopens their doors – so has the Bill Bryson Library building! A small team of staff have been working hard onsite to provide users with the resources they need through Scan and Deliver. If, however, you would like more than one chapter of a book then over July we launched three new and alliterative services: Click and Collect, Browse and Borrow, and Stay and Study.
In the next of our series introducing members of the team who you might meet at our sites or across the University, #DULibIntroducing welcomes Jennifer Knaggs, who you may meet during Extended Hours (evenings and weekends) in Bill Bryson Library. Do say hello!
On Wednesday 29th January, we welcomed acclaimed author and former Chancellor Bill Bryson back to the Library that bears his name. Bill hosted a Q and A in Small Island Coffee which, fittingly, was named after one of his books, Notes from a Small Island. He has been quoted as saying,
“I couldn’t believe that not once in twenty years had anyone said to me: ‘You’ve never been to Durham? Good God, man, you must go at once! Please – take my car’.”
We were delighted to welcome Bill back to the town he so loves!
