Hilary Term Vacation hours and Easter Closure Period

On Sunday 16th March our Hilary Term vacation opening hours begin:

Monday – Friday: 9am – 7pm

Saturday: 10am – 6pm

Sunday: 11am – 7pm

Note that we have extended our opening hours to include Sundays during Easter Vacation 2019 (excluding Easter Sunday (21st April)).

This is a pilot, in line with the Bodleian Libraries Strategic Plan which states: “We will improve access to highly used hub libraries by increasing opening hours to better reflect user requirements” and the results of a recent Opening Hours satisfaction survey.

If the pilot is successful, SSL opening hours will continue to include Sundays in future Easter Vacations.

We will be closed from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st April (dates inclusive).

We will re-open on Monday 22nd April at 9am (closing at 7pm).
