As of today the Library invites students, employees and other visitors to share their inspiring wishes for the new year. This year there are two Wish Trees, located at the University Library Singel and P.C. Hoofthuis Library.

After a year of hard work and studying, the festive month of December feels like the right moment to think about what we all have, and about the future. It is a nice moment to be extra considerate of one another and to send each other best wishes.

The Library staff wishes you Happy Holidays and an inspiring New Year!

How does it work?
Take a wish card, write down your inspiring wish for the new year and hang it in the Wish Tree. If you'd like to have a chance of winning a special surprise, also fill in your name and email address. Please know that this is optional, it is not required. By sharing your name and email address you give the Library permission to email you once, if your wish appears to be the most inspiring in the Wish Tree that is located in the public space. After this wishing campaign the tree will be removed and the wish cards will be destroyed.

Made by
The Wish Tree at University Library Singel is made of recycled wooden pallets by students from ROC Op Maat.
