Update: 6 July 2020 

We are not able to confirm a specific opening date yet, but we are currently planning to reopen in the autumn.  

We’re making sure we have everything in place so that when you visit it is as safe and enjoyable as possible and as soon as our opening date is confirmed we will share this with you. 

We intend to reintroduce some services, including copying and paid research, in the next few weeks and will provide additional information as soon as we are able.  

In the meantime, we hope you’re enjoying our digital content on our website and social media. Thank you for your continued support.
