Service Update: Easter Vacation 2023


We’re creeping slowly closer to spring (though I know it might not feel like that just yet, what with the hints of snow). Well done everyone for making it to the end of Hilary Term! Make sure to take some well deserved respite over the vacation. We’ll be open for (most of) the vacation if you need anything at all from us. In the meantime, our latest updates and information can be found below.

We’re keeping it short and sweet this time – we know you’re all busy.

Vacation Opening Hours

The library will move to vacation opening hours from Monday 13th March. From this point, our opening hours will be Monday to Friday: 9:00-17:00. We will not be open on Saturdays.

Easter Closure

Please note: We will be closed for the Easter bank holidays: Friday 7th April – Monday 10th April.

Vacation Loans

Vacation loans are now in session! Anything that you borrow from now and over the vacation will be due for return in the first week of Trinity Term (which starts on the 23rd April). This means that you can crack on with your reading at home, without worrying about needing to return your books unexpectedly.

Contact Us

If you have any questions or need help with anything, our library staff will always be available during opening hours to speak with you.

You can also contact us via telephone, email, or twitter. All our details can be found on the English Faculty Library webpage.

Final Words

From all of us here at the EFL, we wish you a peaceful vacation.
