at 17 Bloomsbury Square
Starting in November 2002, 17 Bloomsbury Square will be undergoing
extensive renovations, after which the GHIL will occupy the entire
building. The intention is to keep the Library open as far as
possible during the building works, but certain areas may
have to be closed for brief periods at short notice. If
you intend to travel to visit the Library, or need to see anything
in particular, it is advisable to telephone first and check availability.
The works are likely to continue into the new year, and we apologise
for any disruption readers may experience.
Please note our new library opening
From the 1st of June our
late opening hours (5pm - 8pm) will
be on Thursdays only.
