Reading Room on the first floor of the east building is now OPEN!
This is the first new space in the redeveloped BJL to be finished. The
Reading Room contains the High Demand Collection, current journals, reference
and media. It is designed for individual silent study.
Do come and see for yourself, and get a taste of what the whole of the Library
will be like when the redevelopment is complete. We think you'll agree
that it looks stunning.
For the time being, access to the Reading Room is via the south staircase at
the far end of the decant area on the ground floor. It is clearly
signed. There is lift access from the lift by the Reception.
