We are very pleased to announce that from Monday 4th October our opening hours will return to normal, that is:

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday  9.30am-7pm

Tuesday 9.30am-8pm

Friday 9.30am-5pm

Saturday 9.30am-1pm

We are still requesting that members and visitors wear face  coverings whilst in the building,  and also that they check in on arrival.

After 18 long months, it is  great to be fully open again,  and we look forward to welcoming even more members and visitors to the library. We have a busy autumn of talks, concerts, readings, tours and performances coming up – check our events page  for full details.
