Time for fiction?

If you are lucky enough to have some time off during the summer, your thoughts might turn to books you’ve wished to read for a long time, or maybe to simply losing yourself in some attention-grabbing fiction to forget about all else and completely recharge.

The Library now offers a Click & Collect service for items that are located at either Northampton Square Library or Law Library (Northampton Square). However, if you can’t make it to the campus, don’t forget we have many e-books available, too. Like any other resource, you can find them using CityLibrary Search. Just type in the title and select the Full text online filter on the left hand side (you might need to click on the menu icon if using a mobile device). Here is a selection of what we’ve found:

If you find it too hot for fiction, why not browse a magazine via PressReader, or check Box of Broadcasts for a film or a TV show? Either way, we hope you manage to take some time off for yourself before it’s time for the next chapter.
