Opening Hours for Visiting Readers

Monday-Friday: 9am - 5pm

This information is given only for guidance, as readers should make appointments in advance when wishing to use the library.

Closed periods


The library is closed on Good Friday during the Holy Week and the Monday following Easter.

Late summer closed period

The library is closed for 2 weeks at the end of August.

Christmas and New Year

The library is usually closed for ten days at Christmas and New Year. The last day of opening is usually at least two days before Christmas Eve (ie 22nd December), and first day the library reopens is at least two days after New Year's Day (that is 3rd January), but the library may be shut for a longer period depending on what day of the week Christmas falls on.

Readers should avoid arriving between 1pm and 2pm, as we may not be able to fetch the materials you need. During term time it is sometimes possible for readers to stay until 7pm provided that they arrive before 5pm, but this cannot be guaranteed.
