Opening times

The following covers those services provided by the Library. Please note that the Library Coffee Shop is operated by Catering Services, and operates different opening hours. Details can be found on the Catering Services web page. Do not assume the coffee shop is open whenever the Library is.

Two tables are provided below - the first is for the times the Library building is open. Staff (apart from security) may not be available the whole time the building is open, but you will still be able to use our self-service facilities (e.g. to borrow or return books). The second table provides times that service staff are available. Note that these times are for the specified period(s), not the entire year. 

When staff are not available, you can still contact via our 24/7 phone and online chat services.
