Barnes Library refurbishment work

Major work is taking place in the Barnes Library this summer to upgrade the fire precautions, including detectors and emergency lighting, and to replace ceilings. This means that complete floors will be inaccessible for periods of several weeks, starting with the lower ground floor on the 12 June, and moving on to the second floor during July. 

If you need access to any of the stock stored on the affected floors, we will be providing free inter-library loans. Please contact library staff for further details if you think you will need to use this service.

Work should be finished by Friday 15 September, and we will restore access to the affected areas as soon as possible as work is completed before that date. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
