Need some downtime? The Library’s new fiction collection, Relaxing Reads, has been designed to improve student and staff wellbeing by providing recreational reading opportunities.

We also aim to increase diversity in our collection with the inclusion of LGBTQIA+ titles, titles by First Nations authors, and accessible literature for students wishing to improve their English language competency. Relaxing Reads are available to borrow now, for an initial trial period of 9 months. 

Where can I find Relaxing Reads? 

Relaxing Reads can be found outside the High Demand section in the foyer of the Geoffrey Bolton Library, at our South Street campus. 

How many items can I borrow? 

Library users can borrow up to 2 Relaxing Reads items at a time. 

How long can I borrow for? 

Relaxing Reads are available for an initial loan period of 2 weeks, with up to 2 renewals before the item must be returned to the Library, unless recalled by another user. If an item is recalled you will be notified by email and autorenewals will no longer apply. Please return the item by the due date in order to avoid overdue fines. 

If you have any questions or feedback, please contact the Library
