Brynmor Jones Library redevelopment update

What’s going on?

·         Work around the south and west elevations has been intensive as removal of the old service infrastructure is removed in preparation for the installation of the new air handling units. This will result in the heating and ventilation in the building being fully functional and fit for purpose.  A new drainage system is also currently being installed 

·         Work is continuing in the east building and it is expected that the new Reading Room will be opened in early September

·         The third and fourth floor refurbishment is continuing and these floors are expected to be reopened in early September.

·         The location of books in the redeveloped Library can be found on the Redevelopment web site at

When’s it happening?

·         Work on the new service infrastructure continues

·         The new Reading Room will open in early September
