Work will shortly begin on the first phase of a major project to eradicate the damp in our cellar. The project will have major benefits such as increasing our storage capacity, as well as ensuring vastly improved storage conditions for the precious material stored on the 0.7kms of cellar shelving.
Needless to say, there will be disruption to the usual running of the Library while this work is underway. In particular, it will not be possible for readers to have access to the full range of our boxes of pamphlet material/newspapers/journals, as the majority of these will be in off-site storage. The first phase of the project begins week commencing 6 August 2018 and will last at least until mid-November. If planning a trip to use our collections, PLEASE contact us in advance [Contact Us button is top right of this page] to check availability of material you wish to see, to save yourself a potential wasted journey.
Sorry, but we will also not be in a position to accept donations of material during this period (donations of money of course are always welcome! Click here...).
