The Library is open.

As far as possible, everything will be as you remember, but some important changes have been put in place to ensure that members and staff can continue to use the Library safely. 

Importantly, members must book a slot to visit the Library, whether you want to spend the day in the building or collect or return a book. Members will not be permitted inside the building without having a pre-booked slot.

Day passes to work in the Library and access the book stacks are available from 10am on Monday to Friday and 9.30am on Saturday, these are valid from the time you book until the building closes. Normal closing times apply. Please ensure you arrive during the correct booking window.

30 minute book collection and drop off slots are available throughout the day. Please only book a collection slot if you have been notified that your books are ready to collect.

Please visit our reopening page for more information and to book.

We are currently unable to allow non-member access to the building, this includes for tours.
