Prepare them for Cambridge English exams

Entrance free of charge, you can register here.

We kindly ask the BC users not to deface borrowed materials by writing on them!

As the number of library items defaced by borrowers has recently increased significantly, which (especially in the case of tests) reduces their utility value, we are, from September 2016, introducing a system of thorough checks of borrowed items.

All users are kindly requested to check whether the items are not damaged before borrowing.

Any items with a loan date after September 19, 2016 returned to the BC in a defaced condition will, in compliance with the UP Library Regulations, be considered damaged and the borrower requested to pay their full price.
