Library and Archives update

In line with the Government's roadmap out of lockdown, we've reopened more of our libraries, extended opening hours and increased our services.

We are pleased to announce that from Monday 21 June 2021, Victoria Library will join the rest of our libraries in opening to the public.

We are welcoming back customers with heightened hygiene and social distancing measures in place to ensure everyone can safely enjoy all that our Libraries and Archives have to offer.

Our libraries are open to provide:

  • browsing
  • answering enquiries
  • limited study spaces
  • access to computers, which can now be booked in advance
  • reservations, charges for these started from Wednesday 26 May 2021
