By Jes Cooban, on 20 August 2015

Please note – on Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th August some Main Library reading rooms will be having study tables replaced with new ones and this includes one of the Classics reading rooms. This means the room will be closed on the Monday and Tuesday to allow the tables to be replaced and for shelving to be removed.

This is expected to take the full 2 days, although rooms will re-open sooner if work is complete.

Apoligies for any inconvenience.
