This year the book is Matt Cosgrove's 'Alpacas with Maracas', and if you want to join in on all the fun we'll be playing an electronic version in Swifts Cafe in the Matheson Library. Sit down, enjoy a coffee and have a read!
It's getting darker earlier and with many of our libraries open until late we want to make sure you're getting home safe. Walk with your friends to your car or the train station or take the security bus if you’re going within 2kms of campus.
