Late Night Library

Late Night Library is suspended until September. Click here for the latest information.

In October 2019 we launched 'Late Night Library', extending our opening hours til 21.00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

It was the first increase in Library opening hours in decades.

Already we can see many people are appreciating the opportunity to borrow and return books outside regular working hours, as well as the chance to use the building as a community and social space for reading, playing board games and video games, doing jigsaw puzzles, and all sorts of other activities that help boost health and well-being.

We also see Late Night Library as a great way to improve our offering for students, who until now have had minimal access outside school or office hours. If you’re studying for school exams, accountancy exams, or any other qualification, come and make use of our quiet study space, our WiFi, and our coffee machine.

Events already taking place in these hours include LEGO nights for families, Living History tours, a monthly workshop for creative writers, a Quiet Hour aimed at children and adults with autism, and regular IT classes. Late Night Library also provides an opportunity for other organisations and charities to use the Library building for their own clubs and drop-ins. If you're interested in making use of the space, get in touch!
