Move over St Valentine’s because 14 February is also Library Lovers’ Day and Bond University’s John & Alison Kearney Library will be celebrating.
John & Alison Kearney Main Library will be providing a display, with a vintage typewriter, pens and paper for you to type/write a love letter to someone special, or to your favourite Library, if you so wish. There will be lots of Library Lovers’ Day giveaways at the Law Library too.
Library Lovers’ Day is a chance for everyone to reconnect with the library and share the library love.
The initiative, coordinated by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), aims to raise the profile of the services which libraries offer. Australia’s libraries provide quality information services that support lifelong learning.
Your library provides access to information and resources which have been carefully curated, chosen because they are high quality and meet your needs. What’s more, your Library Staff and Faculty Librarians has been specifically trained to help you find the information you need to succeed as a student at Bond.
The library has also evolved into a social space to meet, collaborate, research, learn, share and relax. At our library, workshops are taught, new skills are learnt, study groups can meet, games can be played, technology can be used to create, and in our library, you can even get something to eat at the cafe.
Save the date — 14 February … Celebrate the library love with us at the Library!
