The next two weeks...

I will not be here (holiday time! :-) ) but Clare, one of my assistants, will be replacing me in the library for about one hour a day around 2 pm.

There will be tours at 2 pm but no tours at 10 am.

Opening hours are as usual the vacations hours:
Monday to Friday from 8.45 am to 4.30 pm

Best wishes, and I see you all again in two weeks time! :-)

Vacation time next week

Dear readers,

so next week we are in vacation time. We will open the centre, and the library, at 8.45 am and close at 4.30 pm. Hope that will still give you time to visit us! Remember, if you are student or staff at Oxford University, you can BORROW from us! :-)

Leaving for good, or for the summer!

If you are leaving the university or going on holiday for a looooonnng time, please return your items to the library. They are no special vacation loans (4 weeks for standard loans, and 2 weeks for short loans, as usual). Thank you!

Also please, think... are you really going to take this colloquial teach yourself grammar next to the swimming pool? And put some greasy, smelly (etc...) suncream on it and salt water and ... and ... 

No. You are going to learn the language with the OTHER! Read THIS people. 

(who will take her ebook reader, her tablet, her laptop on vacation, AND THAT'S ALL! She will speak Californian English and Spanish, just by meeting people! :-) )
