Last week, the Library installed a door between the Art Room and the Art Reading Room.

The new door will help to control noise flow between the two reading rooms and enable the Art Reading Room to be used as a dynamic space, both as a reading room and an additional event space.

During the pandemic, the Library opened the Art Reading Room to allow for more working spaces with appropriate social distancing measures across the Library. Since that time, the room has proved to be enduringly popular with members.

The Art Reading Room is just one of six reading rooms available to members across the Library.
