Take a break
It’s important to take breaks during your revision and we’re here to help with our Room to Study service and Library Games Zones.
Room to Study
Pick up a Room to Study flyers in libraries and fill in the back to let library staff know that you’re taking a short break and will be return shortly. Don’t forget to take your valuables with you.
If you are gone for more than 30 minutes, our library staff will move your belongings to free up the space for others.

You’ll find Lego, solo and group board games, colouring-in and more.
