On Saturday 13 September the University arranged a community activities day on campus, throwing its doors open to the local community and laying on special activities in different departments. This also coincided with the Heritage Open Days which run at the start of September each year.
The open day at the Ruskin Library was a huge success. There was barely a moment to rest as a constant stream of visitors flooded through the doors to see the building and the exhibition. People of all ages enjoyed a taste of the Ruskin Library workshops – sketching natural objects and making books.
