Exam week is almost over!

If this is your final exam block at Griffith before you graduate: 1) Congratulations!, and 2) We’ll miss you!

But just because you’re graduating doesn’t mean you have to leave the Griffith library behind.

You are eligible for an alumni membership which allows you to borrow up to 20 standard loans. And, did we mention it’s free? Just come in to sign up, and you’ll get a yearly membership for free!

You’re also welcome to use our library spaces at any time. For more information, check out what you can borrow as a community member.

And, if you really like the library (we do), why not join Friends of the Library while you’re at it? The network provides wonderful professional and social opportunities for those interested in supporting the library and its evolution in our rapidly changing education environment.

An annual membership is $25, and provides you: invitations to events featuring national and international guest speakers, Friends only networking opportunities, access to exhibitions and displays, special pre-sale ticket offers to certain Griffith events, and a regular Friends of the Library e-newsletter.

Finally, don’t forget to stay connected through Griffith’s Alumni Network.


Masters and Slaves: the great literary showdown

mastersandslaves

Who’s your literary hero? William Shakespeare? Charles Dickens? Jane Austen? Or maybe Harry Potter rocked your muggle world and you absolutely idolise J.K Rowling.

They are a superstar, right? There is no one quite like them…. They win. Or do they?

Come and watch talented School of Humanities, Languages and Social Sciences students take on their literary heroes at the annual Masters and Slaves battle on the Gold Coast.

In this must-see event, students will perform a piece inspired by a famous author; living or dead. Whether they talk them up or take them down, we’ll find out who are the literary masters and who the slaves.

Hosted by Friends of the Library, Masters and Slaves is a crowd favourite; after all, who doesn’t love take-down critiques, satirical rants, author dedications and painful homages?

You can’t miss this epic duel! Book now!
