As reported on the University’s News and Events web pages, hundreds of students and school children are busy preparing for a celebration with Pudsey as they transform The Forum at the University of Exeter into a family-friendly open party. A packed programme of free entertainment will be broadcast nationwide, raising thousands of pounds for Children in Need on Friday November 16th 2012.
It promises to be an exciting and colorful event, and you are very welcome to join in the fun – in the Library we are doing our bit to raise money by offering you the chance to donate your Library fines money to the appeal. However, if what you really want to do is simply to continue your studies in peace, Library staff will be more than happy to help you find a quiet spot.
Please note The Sanctuary will be unavailable all day on Friday 16th due to Children in Need events taking place there.
The Forum Library will remain open and accessible throughout.
We anticipate that the ‘Forum’ end of the library is likely to be affected by the boisterous nature of the event, but that the Silent Study and Group Study areas towards the rear of the Library will probably be relatively unaffected.
If you prefer to avoid the Forum and the Forum Library altogether, our Library staff will be happy to offer directions to alternative study areas –.
The Library’s ‘Pudsey-free zones’ include:
Research Commons: offering a large Reading Room, multi-media seminar room and a café-style break out space, the Research Commons is housed in the Old Library building on the Streatham campus near the University Chapel. Research Commons is open until 9pm
St Lukes Campus Library: offering over 180 study spaces; a 24/7 Study Room and the 24/7 Haighton PC Cluster, the Library is housed in the Haighton Building on St Lukes Campus. The Library is open until 9pm, after which the 24/7 Study Room will continue to be available
Amory Study Centre: offering a mix of silent, quiet and group study facilities, and a total of c240 seats. The Amory Study Centre is usually open until 8pm but the Library has arranged special extended opening hours (until midnight) for t on Children in Need night, so that you can continue working here away from any disruption in the Forum.
