A big welcome to all our new students! It was great to see you in the library as part of your induction day. We are an excellent place for quiet individual study and our friendly team are always on hand to help. See you again very soon!

Meet Badger

The library has a lovely dog called Badger who is here most Fridays, so do come and say hello to her if you'd like to meet her.

Library Website

Find everything you need to know about using the library and all the resources we have to support your studies on the library website. Find a link to it in 'Student Essentials' on the college website or on MyVarndean.


Read & Relax

We have a new read and relax area at the front of the library where you will find our excellent fiction collection along with graphic novels, young adult fiction and quick reads.

Silent Study Room

There is now a dedicated silent study room at the back of the library with 8pcs for students to use. If you prefer to work in silence, this is the place for you!

New Study Booths

We now have 20 new study booth spaces in the library for quiet individual study. Please remember the library is not a social space and please work quietly at all times.
