Library Refurbishment: work late September/early October

Library works up to 9 October

Work currently focuses on preparing to demolish the glass-fronted staircase.

Until Sunday 9 October 2016, the most noticeable aspects of Library refurbishment work will be focused around preparing to demolish the old glass-fronted staircase, now enclosed by hoarding walls on all floors. However, all Library services are operating as usual.

Outside the Library, activity focuses within the closed-off contractor area, fitting out new office space. If you’re travelling around this area please be mindful of your surroundings. 

For more details on construction works please see the floor-by-floor work plan and our contractor’s newsletter for more.

As usual, the noisiest work will cease by 10:00am. Please ask Library staff where to find study areas furthest away from current works. 

Don’t forget that there will be plenty of other spaces available across the Library that will be much quieter than those next to areas of concentrated work- please ask a member of our Library team for information.  

See our dedicated Library refurbishment and 2026: TRANSFORM pages for further details.
