The library will be open next week at the following times:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday: 2.15pm-5pm
Wednesday: 2pm-4.30pm

If you would like to visit the library, do contact us by email or phone to make an appointment.

Our books from shelfmarks RC to RM have now returned to the library following conservation treatment. However, please excuse our slightly jumbled state over the next week as we rearrange our shelves! If you find that a book you need isn’t in the right place on the shelf, let a member of staff know and we will locate it for you.

Have a great weekend!
