Old Library 7-9 April

There will be maintenance work on the lights taking place in the Old Library on 7-9 April.  The Library will be open and you will be able to fetch books from the shelves, but it will not be possible to sit and read.  However, the Poetry Room and the Goodman Library will be open as normal, offering very pleasant alternative study space. 

Please note it will not be possible to view the Pre-Raphaelite murals on 7-8 April.
