Book sale Trinity Term 2014

We have a number of books for sale – listed below at bargain prices!

Books will be sold on a first come, first served basis and the list will be updated when books are sold. Please note that this sale is open to members of college only.

Please email to reserve your items: due to the quite large number of books available in this term’s sale, we will be unable to display them in the loggia until we have sold a few. However, if you would like to look before you buy, please email us or ask at the Library desk!

Books can be collected and paid for in the library between 9 and 6 during the week or 9-1 on Saturday. Anything not paid for within three days of reservation will be readvertised. If you have difficulty coming into the library at these times but would like to reserve a book, please ask us to add it to your battels account.

The list will be edited fairly frequently, so please keep checking it!

As there are a lot of books, and on similar topics, if you would like to buy several then we are happy to listen to all reasonable offers!
