Visiting the Library

We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to see you all again soon.

Members of the public are welcome to visit the Library and view exhibitions in Crush Hall and the Library Reading Room on Monday afternoons 2pm-5pm (excluding public holidays), and any other time by appointment.
