Invasion of the pod people

Did you guess what was in the huge pile of boxes on Level 3? It wasn’t, as suggested by many, an indoor tennis court for giants, although 10 out of 10 for imagination.

Instead, the library elves have been busy putting together our stylish new top-of-the-range study pods. Combining comfort and practicality, the new seating allows up to six people to study together on soft comfy chairs, complete with desk and electrical sockets.


Choose a pod with a higher or lower back for your own level of privacy.


We think they’re rather snazzy, but we’d love to know what you think. Tweet us a picture of you using the pods to @CityUniLibrary .
