Renovations 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 hours

From the 1st of June ou
r late opening hours (5pm - 8pm) will be on Thursdays only.
