Overall occupancy levels of library buildings have been reduced to facilitate social distancing. The number of people entering the buildings is monitored, subject to a one-in-one-out approach. Patrons can still come into the library to browse and borrow or print, without having to reserve a slot. However, if you want to study at one of the designated reading desks for a period of time, you must book a seat.
There are 411 bookable seats in Boole Library, spread across 5 floors, and 60 in Brookfield (BSHS) Library.
The new Reading Rooms on Q+1, Q+2 and Q+3 are temporarily closed in order to conserve energy. All other reading spaces in the Boole Library remain open for seat bookings.
Please read the Terms & Conditions of use below carefully and see our Reopening Policies for more information. We appreciate your cooperation while you use the library. Thank you.
