Fry Chronicles

Some lovely person just donated a hardback copy of the Fry Chronicles to our college library.
In the current financial climate we are happy to obtain good, clean, copies of books for our library collection.

Our summer stockcheck & clearout was very successful this time around.There are some spaces on the shelves for new titles in the coming academic year.

We are getting smarter at the stockcheck process as the years go by.
