With the Christmas break rapidly approaching, we’ve reached that point in the year where we confirm the Library’s closure over the holidays. However, it is worth noting that our opening hours this Christmas are slightly different to previous years:
On Monday 23rd December and Tuesday 24th December the Library will be staffed by security and will be self-service only.
Therefore you should aim to complete any transactions that require Library staff before Friday 20th December.
The Library will then be closing for the Christmas break at 1pm on Tuesday 24th December and will reopen at 8am on Thursday 2nd January.
As ever, the Computer Rooms next to the Library will be open 24/7 during this period but access to the building will require a valid ID card. If you are planning to use these facilities during the break, users may wish to check that their Library account has not expired – this is particularly relevant for our NHS users.
There is a lot of information to take in during your first week, so we have picked out 5 things you need to know about the Library and each day this week we will tell you about a different aspect of the Library service through our blog.
1 – When we are open
The Library is open: Monday – Friday 8am – 11pm Saturday – Sunday 9am – 9pm
The Library is self-service only after 6pm Monday to Friday, and throughout the weekends. If there are any changes to opening or staffed times, such as on public holidays, a notice will be put on the Library Blog.
Self service facilities at the Library include:
access to study spaces and Computer Rooms
printing and photocopying
borrowing and returning books
viewing your library account and paying fines
The Computer Rooms can be accessed 24 hours a day throughout the year for those times when you are burning the midnight oil…
