The project to replace the central lifts starts at 5pm this Friday!
The central lifts and stairs will be closed to all Library users from 5pm on Friday 22nd May until 7.15am on Saturday 23rd May. This is to allow the project team to install protective hoardings round each lift entrance.
Once the project is up and running you’ll be able to access the central stairs between levels 3 and 10. Access to and from levels 2 and 11 will be closed for the duration of the project, as these will be the main access points for the lift engineers and other contractors. You’ll still be able to access every level of the library, including the annexes, from the tower 5 lifts and stairs (opposite the Library Services desk).
We’ll post regular updates here to let you know how the project is progressing.
