Opening Hours

IALS from Russell Square

Building Closure – Sunday 11 November 2018

An integral part of the IALS Transformation Project is the renewal of the main electrical system infrastructure throughout the building. The first phase of these works requires the electricity supply to be turned off for a day.
It has therefore been agreed to close the building on Sunday 11 November 2018.
The library will be open as usual until 8.30pm on Saturday the 10th and re-open at 9am on Monday the 12th.

This closure is unavoidable, but nevertheless we apologise for the inconvenience it may cause you.
