Wednesday 15 August – power shutdown between 07:30–08:30

The power will be shut down in the Library on Floors 3, 4 and 5 between 07:30 and 08:30 tomorrow morning (Wednesday 15 August).

The contractors have assured us that the power will be back on at 08:30 and the Library will open at 08:30 as usual. However, if there is an unexpected delay in reconnecting the power we may need to restrict movement on the floors affected because of Health and Safety concerns.  The Library extension building will be unaffected.

Please visit the Library website for updated information.
