Library Life Blog: Monday 28th October- Sunday 3rd November

Library Life is our weekly blog to let you know what will be going on around the library next week to help you plan your days and be aware of what is on.
*Updated Tuesday 29th October

26 York Extended Opening Hours:

Tuesday 29th October to Tuesday 17th December  2019

October Bank Holiday Opening Hours

Mon 28th Oct opening hours: 26 York St & Beaumont Library will be open as a Reading Room only. The Information Point will not be open at either site.

#FairSpaceForAll - Bookmarks available in 26 York St Library Spaces

See our full explainer blog post on #FSFA here.

How do they work? 
Grab a bookmark when you come into the library or when you find your seat. When you want to leave your seat, fill in the date and the time you leave, and be back with 45 minutes!

If you are leaving your seat for more than 45 minutes, take your belongings with you or they might get packed up and moved to the concourse area on that floor - i.e. opposite the main lifts.

When can items be moved? Items can be moved when you have not followed the policy of noting the date and time you have left your desk, or if you are gone longer than 45 minutes, or if you put the wrong time on your bookmark, or if you don't use a bookmark at all.

When are items cleared from desks? This can happen at any time, in any area of the library to any desk not adhering to the policy. Sometimes only one desk might be cleared, sometimes all desks might be cleared so the best advice is to adhere to the policy!

Ask at the Library Information Point in 26 York Street for more information.
