Reading Rooms Closed on Mondays

Please note that the Main and Manuscript Reading Rooms will be closed on Mondays from 14th August. This is to facilitate projects associated with the NLI’s building programme. The building programme will allow us to create suitable storage and preservation conditions for the national collections, and deliver enhanced public spaces and services.

The Main and Manuscript Reading Rooms will continue to be open all day Tuesday – Friday (with late opening until 7.45pm on Tuesday and Wednesdays as normal) and on Saturday morning.

All our digital services, including the online catalogue, will continue to be available 24/7.

All other services – the Genealogy Advisory Service, the National Photographic Archive, our exhibitions, tours and workshops, public events programme and café – are unaffected by these changes and operate as normal.
