New Vending Machine!

Just in case you haven't seen it, we wanted to make you all aware that there is now a vending machine in the cafe area on the Ground Floor. It is called 'Lisa', and stocks a variety of healthy crisps/snacks and soft drinks.

We thought this might be particularly useful for readers using the libraries on evenings and Saturdays, as they'll be able to get something to eat/drink even when the cafe is closed.

It (she?) takes coins, or debit/credit cards. However, be aware that if you use a card to purchase anything from the machine it costs 6% more than the hard currency price.

Happy munching (though, of course, not in the library!)

Dates for your Diary: Summer Closures

Thursday 8th June is the Joint Library's last evening opening of the summer, and after that date the library will close at 6pm every day until the new term. 8pm closing (on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays) will start again on Tuesday 3rd October, until Thursday 14th December.

The library will be closing as usual for two weeks at the end of August. We will close at 6pm on Friday 18th August, and re-open at 9:30am on Monday 4th September.

Please also note that we expect building work to be starting around the end of July, since the lobby will be being refurbished. While these renovations are happening the library will not be accessible through the normal entrance, but instead through the doors by the service lift (which open on to the Atlas section near Numismatics). We will give you further details and more specific dates when we know them.
