The library is closed on Sundays throughout the year.

Procedure at Closing Time

Please note that a bell is sounded 25 minutes before the building closes in order to alert readers to the fact that the library is approaching closure time. Library users are asked to vacate the library floors approximately ten minutes before the final closure time. This allows the building to be adequately secured.

Holiday Closure

The Library is closed annually from Good Friday until Easter Monday (inclusive), the August Bank Holiday Monday and over the Christmas and New Year period.

In addition the library is closed for the third week in September for the annual stock-taking exercise.
