Visitors to the Reading Room
Visitors are welcome to visit the main Reading Room but must follow the signs and directions of staff.
The Reading Room may be viewed from the designated viewing area only. Photography is not permitted.
At certain times during the year, we host open days/evenings which provide the opportunity for a free informal visit to the Main Reading Room. Visitors are welcome to use their cameras on these visits. All are welcome and no booking is required. Such days are listed as part of the Current Events programme.

Additionally, visitors can take the virtual 360° Tour of the Main Reading Room which is available on the library’s website.
