Interview with Aravind Adiga

I really enjoyed Eleanor Wachtel’s June 21st interview with Aravind Adiga on Writers & Company.  Well, I always enjoy Writers & Company (not a big surprise, coming from a librarian), but this one was especially interesting.  Adiga is the author of The White Tiger, which won the 2008 Booker Prize.

Borrowing from Laidlaw Library in the summer

For the most part Laidlaw Library does not lend books during the summer because the library is closed. But there are two exceptions:

  1. University College faculty & appointed staff: You are welcome to borrow any of our books during the summer. Just e-mail or call us with your request, and we will check the book(s) out to you and deliver them to your UC mailbox or UC office, usually within a couple of days.
  2. Other borrowers: Although we are closed, if there’s a book you need and we have the only available library copy on the St. George campus, please e-mail us or call, as we may be able to make a special exception and lend the book to you at a mutually convenient time.

We have a book return box just outside the library doors.
