New books display
New books published in 2013 and 2014 are displayed on the Ground Floor, Central Library. Students can browse the books and if they are interested, they can borrow the books straight away.
This area is created especially for children and the furniture are designed for children.
Children below 13 years old must at all times be accompanied by an adult. The adult can be their parents, relatives or friends whom the child is familiar with.
The accompanying adult is solely responsible for the safety of the children under their care whilst they are here.
Any books, interactive games, learning kits and accompanying equipment are for use in the Children’s Corner only and should not be taken away.
Users should use the facilities in the Children’s Corner with due care. Any damage to the materials here should be reported immediately to the staff at the Reference Desk. Users may be held responsible for any damage done.
Users should keep the Children’s Corner clean and tidy.
Users should conduct themselves in orderly and quiet manner. Large bags and any items not needed for the care of the child must be kept in the lockers provided in the Locker Room. We do not take any responsibility for loss of personal belongings here.
Hard, sharp or any hazardous objects should not be brought into the Children’s Corner.
