Leazes Road Library summer closure

(25 May 2018)

Due to the refurbishment programme for the School of Education, Leazes Road Library will be closed from Saturday, 16 June to Monday, 27 August inclusive.

Returning books

During this time books borrowed from Leazes Road Library may be returned to Bill Bryson Library. Bill Bryson library will be open daily until 8pm including weekends. For details see opening hours:

There will be no book drop at either library when the library is closed over the summer, due to refurbishment at both locations.

Returned books will be held at Bill Bryson library and may be borrowed again from there.

Requesting books

If you are likely to need books from Leazes Road, please borrow them before 15 June. Whilst we may be able to retrieve books after this date, you will need to allow time for the items to be collected.
