Beyond studying

Leisure reading

You don't just have to use our collections for study; we have plenty of resources for your leisure too. Reading for pleasure can lessen feelings of stress and depression, boost self-esteem and your ability to cope with difficult situations and the bonus is that you can do this using Your Library for free. Explore our collections for books, TV programmes, DVDs, and newspapers of interest. 

Alternatively you could support your local library by joining up and making use of the diverse and exciting materials that they have to offer across the county:

Beyond reading

It is not just about reading either; join the NTU Library Community Facebook page for the latest updates about Nottingham's cultural scene and our recommendations for things to do, places to visit and events to attend in your spare time.

Additionally for those gamers amongst you, with a keen interest in arcade games and how video games have developed over time, then Game City & The National Video Arcade http://gamecity.org/visit/ is the place for you. Go to the official site, or simply drop in, for more information about what’s on, opening hours and how to make the most out of your visit.
