The exams are over, it’s time to make time for yourself.

Catch up on sleep, finish that TV series, re-watch an old favourite, grab a coffee with friends or just relax with a book.

There are lots of things you can do to recharge and enjoy the end of year festivities.

Another great idea is to have a look at the Recreational Resources at your ACU Library.

There are:

  • movies
  • TV shows
  • music & performances
  • newspapers & magazines
  • books – eBooks & audio books

to take with you or stream online wherever you go during the break.
