We are delighted to announce that the Library will soon move to an earlier opening time. From Monday 7 March we will once again be opening from 9:30am, allowing our members more time to use the Library. Our covid measures remain the same and we continue to review them in line with changes to Government advice. The latest advice remains that you wear a mask "in crowded and enclosed spaces, especially where you come into contact with people you do not usually meet."

Currently, our members have access to three spaces that can be used without masks: the main Reading Room, the Sackler Study and the 6th floor members' area. Members are required to wear masks everywhere else in the Library, including when moving about spaces and during all interactions with members of staff. In light of the Government announcements we want to reassure members that we will continue to ask our staff not to come to work if they test positive for or have symptoms of Covid.
