Student Booksale 11/10/17

Need to grab a cheap copy of a textbook or set text for your course? While we in the Library will have the vast majority of books you need, sometimes you will want your own copy, especially if everyone in the class is told to read a particular work, or you like to annotate with notes.

With that in mind, the annual Student Booksale takes place on Wednesday 11th October in the Goldsmith Hall Concourse from 10:00am to 3:00pm. These are books selected with students’ needs in mind so lots of textbooks in all sorts of subjects. All welcome, not just TCD students!
