If you prefer, you can also still take advantage of our Click and Collect service--see below for more details.
Opening hours for all branches
You can browse our collections, sit in our study rooms, take advantage of free WiFi and use our computers across all nine branches. You do need to book computers in advance--please see the information below. We are a COVID-safe workplace, so social distancing and hygiene measures still apply and the number of people allowed at each branch and in each quiet room depends on the size of the library. There is still no access to physical newspapers.
